Last week the Icelandic class learned about the most famous Icelandic Saga, the Gísla Saga, which happened here in the Westfjords about 1000 years ago. We then got to go to the fjord where it took place, watch a 1 man performance about the saga, then tromp around the fjord searching for clues for a scavenger hunt! Hands down was my favorite day of class. Pictured is the winning team of the scavenger hunt! •

I finally got the picture that I’ve been wanting so badly since coming to #Iceland: #sheep! 🐏 #animals #nature
This may look like just another picture of me surrounded by Icelandic mountains, but I’m actually standing on the spot where a man named Gísli Súrsson may have lived long ago. This valley is called Haukadalur, and it is where some of the major events of Gísla saga take place. I am standing where Hóll could have been, which was Gísli’s farmstead before he was outlawed. It was a wonderful experience, standing here and wondering about the events that could have unfolded here. This land still holds the lives and memories that inspired the creation of one of Iceland’s greatest sagas. 📖 #sagas #Iceland #norse

Sur les traces de Gísli, dans la magnifique vallée d'Haukadalur, baignée d'une incroyable lumière...
