A TOUR THROUGH HISTORY: The last execution in Iceland and seal watching by boat

TOUR THROUGH ICELANDIC HISTORY: The last execution in Iceland and seal watching by boat.

Duration: 9 hours

Pick up from your location at 09.00 .

Inspired by a true story from the novel Burial Rites after Hannah Kent: the final days of a young woman accused of murder in Iceland in 1829.

This historical tour will take you back to the life in 19th Century Iceland. You will learn about the last public executions in Iceland that took place on January 12th, 1830. The tragic events that lead to the crime and the verdict of capital punishment by beheading of the murderous couple will be explored.

You will also experience Nature, the true Icelandic countryside, including farms and fields, fjords and valleys. We will do a boat trip with locals and see seals in their natural environment. This trip is perfect for families. You will see “sellátur” (a location where seals gather and give birth to their pups) and one of the most beautifully located sheepfolds in the country. You will be in the safe hands of our experienced guide.  We do provide you with an excellent, personal service.
