Geysir Things to Do: 39 reviews and 123 photos
Above the hotel at Geysir there is a troll - not an elf, as they look like humans - but a big troll :)
We Icelanders not only believe in the existance of elves, we also believe in trolls. But that is a different kind of belief. Because we know that the elves are alive now, but the trolls we know of are all petrified as they didn't make it home before sunrise. So they are kind of in the past, Icelanders don't think they will encounter a big troll while travelling in Iceland - just the petrified ones. But there are so many tales in Iceland of encounters with the trolls - maybe they are still alive? And let´s not forget that they eat humans!
So if you want a photo with a troll this is the place. JumpingNorman got his photo taken with the troll when he visited Iceland and so did I ;) And he merged our photos together - I love it, thanks Norman :)
I visited the troll again in May and July 2013 with VT-members, and then a big chair had been placed by the troll.
Directions: Above Geysir hotel by the road.
