Welcome to Supernatural Iceland! In this episode we’re looking at Trolls, one of the most famous otherworldly inhabitants of Iceland. Trolls are generally described as being dumb, unruly, wild, greedy and cruel – but in the Folklores of Iceland there are also stories of them being loyal, honourable – even kind.

Join Valur Grettisson, editor-in-chief of Reykjavík Grapevine, as he explores the world of folklore, other-worldly visits and strange happenings in Iceland. Meet ghosts, ghouls, goblins and even UFOs as we travel around the country seeking out the the strange and unusual.
