Located right at the edge of Reykjavik’s old harbor, Harpa Concert Hall presents visitors to Iceland with the ultimate Viking comedy show! 40 Icelandic sagas about Vikings, their settlement in Iceland, and the nature of Icelanders are brought alive in a 75-minute comedy show. Great fun for the whole family awaits at the Northern Lights Hall inside Harpa. 

The Icelandic saga collection is an official part of UNESCO World Culture Heritage — and for good reason. The sagas depict the early life of Icelanders, Viking settlement, exploration of the surrounding world,  and heated family feuds. The show includes world-famous Icelandic sagas including the Saga of Njáll, Laxdæla Saga, Saga of Egill, and many more. Preserved on calf-skin manuscripts for more than a millennium, the sagas are an excellent way to learn about Icelandic culture, customs, and heritage.

There is no age limit for the show. Bring the whole family and spend more than an hour observing the life of the Vikings as depicted by six talented actors. Spectators are allowed to take pictures (just avoid flash), so make sure you have your camera with you! Also, the show is an interactive experience, be ready to partake when invited on stage by the performers. 

Don’t miss your chance to take pictures with the actors after the show! Some spectators might even get to dress up in Viking garments and snap a few selfies — a fabulous souvenir to bring back from Iceland!
