About The Icelandic Elves And The Hidden People Class

Many Icelanders have seen and talked with elves and hidden people. Sometimes they have been invited into their homes and had a cup of coffee with cookies or pancakes. Some have even stayed for a night and slept there.

I will tell you everything that is known about elves and hidden people, as well as gnomes, dwarfs, fairies, trolls, mountain spirits, and other nature spirits in Iceland. You will discover their secrets, where these beings live, what they look like, their ideas about humans, and about all the other nature spirits that seem to live around us. 

All the stories and reports that I will share with you are true and just a small part of thousands and thousands of records. These records include stories of personal experiences and friendship between Icelanders, the elves, the hidden people and other beings. 

At the end of the class, and if you pass the test, you will be honored with an official Elf and Hidden People Diploma – an exclusive honor that is only given to all those students who attend my elves class in Iceland.

"Elves and Hidden People"

We heard and learned few stories about elves as well as about the hidden people of Iceland. We learned that about half of the Icelanders still believe in them today, but “Englightment” is slowly changing all of this. He collected many stores and recorded peoples' testimonies who have seen elves and hidden people themselves.

To make the most of the time with Magnus, it’s important to be active participants by asking questions instead of just passively listening to his stories. We did just that, and we found our discussions to be more insightful and engaging.

Halfway through the lesson, fresh coffee, home-made bread and fresh Icelandic pancakes filled with jam and whipped cream were served to us. They were DELICIOUS! Whether you believe in elves or not, this was a wonderful way to learn about one of Iceland’s cultural folklore.
I would definitely recommend it to family and friends.
