Reykjavík City Library Dark Deeds Walk

The Reykjavík City Library hosts free literary walking tours in downtown Reykjavík every Thursday in June, July and August at 3 pm.

The walks start from the library's main branch in Tryggvagata 15. Icelandic ghost stories and crime fiction will be introduced at various stops by guides from the library. This walk suits everyone, as it is at an easy pace. It is a fun way to get to know Icelandic literature and view the settings. The program takes around an hour and a half.

Also each Thursday at 2 pm there is a screening of Spirits of Iceland: Living With Elves, Trolls and Ghosts, in the library's 5th floor screening room, Kamesid. This is a 45 min. film on Icelandic folklore, and a fine warm-up for the walking tour.
