Tales from Iceland

Iceland as portrayed through the eyes of visitors.

Just one block off Laugavegur shopping street, near Hlemmur Food Hall, is Tales from Iceland, a one-hour audiovisual experience. Opened in the fall of 2017, Tales from Iceland has fourteen 4K screens, up to 100 inch large. Each screen runs one four-minute movie in a synchronised setting, covering a multitude of topics.

Whether you just touched down in Iceland, or you’re wrapping up your trip, Tales from Iceland offers visitors a chance to get know the country and its inhabitants. Artists and athletes, musicians and politicians, fishermen and farmers, history and recent events, as well as natural wonders, all get their due share. The films are engaging, loaded with interesting facts and Icelandic humour. Narration and subtitles are in English and no headphones are needed. 

Each theatre area has comfortable sofas and chairs, so you can sit back and rest your legs while enjoying the movies. You can also enjoy coffee, sodas, and Icelandic cookies, all included in the admission fee! Tales from Iceland offers free Wi-Fi as well as luggage storage for travellers carrying their suitcases around.
