FROM 2,500 ISK
The Icelandic Music & Storytelling experience is a 1.5 hr show with your host, Hanna Mia, who will sing traditional Icelandic music and regale you of some of the more weird and wonderful stories of Iceland. There are two options to join this show, and both will leave you with a new found appreciation for Iceland and its people. You can choose the daytime show every Tuesday, at the beautiful IÐNÓ House, or wish to join her at her quaint downtown home for an evening session on Saturdays.
Hanna Mia, your host, is a talented young singer-songwriter living in downtown Reykjavík. She has been a tour guide for many years, speaks 5 languages and has recently set herself the goal to write and perform one new song every single day for an entire year. This creative endeavor comes to a conclusion in the summer of 2019. Her voice is one of a kind and her effortless ability to bring together the crowd with her passion for Iceland makes this experience feel more like friends enjoying some down time rather than attending a show.
