The Icelandic sagas are part of UNESCO World Culture Heritage for a reason. The show includes world-famous Icelandic sagas, such as Saga of Njáll, Laxdæla Saga, Saga of Egill, and many more. Millennium-old sagas, preserved on calf-skin manuscripts, are the best way to learn about the Icelandic culture, heritage, and customs.

The viewers are allowed to take pictures (just avoid using flash), so don't forget to bring your camera with you! This show is also an interactive experience where viewers can be expected to be invited on stage by performers.
Don't miss your chance to chat and take pictures with the actors after the performances! It will be a lovely souvenir to bring back from Iceland.
