You'll probably be surprised to know that Iceland has elves, yes real elves, at least as measured by how important they are for Icelandic life. And significant parts of the landscape are considered sacred as the elves live there. Highways and roads have been rerouted, and homes built, all in order to avoid the elves' sacred spaces.
For our last two days we took a full-size bus south of Reykjavik toward the south coast. We got to see a bit of the very limited farmland on Iceland, some waterfalls, and the Skogar Museum, an open air folk museum - as well as some of those sacred spaces for the local elf communities.
