The Real Iceland - insider's guide written by a local expert
The Real Iceland - insider's guide written by a local expert.
History, local favourites, elves and everything you want to know but don't know who to ask.
The Real Iceland by Pál Ásgeir Ásgeirsson is a strange and fun book where foreign tourists are led into all the truth about Iceland and the Icelandic nation.
Here is a story about various things that are not directly apparent during a short visit to Iceland, but are nevertheless ingrained in the national psyche. These ironic but true bits of information enrich the understanding of the country and help tourists get the most out of the trip.
Drinking customs and eating habits, celebrities, historical facts, unusual places and beautiful houses, good advice on cheap food and drink… all this has its place in Pál Ásgeir's lively and funny text.
