Where you'll be

The experience is hosted in an Icelandic wooden house right downtown in Reykjavík just by the main church; Hallgrimskirkja. It is one of the oldest private homes still standing in the city. It feels like entering a typical Scandinavian home on the countryside, and yet you are just a few steps from the main street of Laugavegur.

Rated 4.95 out of 5 from 86 reviews.

Our experience with Hanna Mia was a highlight of our trip. It is a truly unique way to enjoy Icelandic music. We spent our last night in Iceland listening to Hanna Mia share stories and songs about the rich Icelandic history and culture. Hanna Mia made us feel so welcome and comfortable in her beautiful home. She is a talenteted musician, singing beautifully and sharing her own wonderful compositions too. We would highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Reykavik!

Are you interested in getting to experience something about Icelandic culture and history? Then this is the right thing for you to do. Hanna will not only share lots of interesting and funny stories about icelandic traditions and beliefs, but also about her own life and family. And best of all, she lets us listen to her wonderful voice singing old and new, home made folk songs. We had a wonderful time, I could easily have stayed in my chair listening for the rest of the day... ;-) Highly recommendable!

This was a lovely afternoon for us. Relaxed, low key, charming music (wanted more time for music!), intimate conversation--the opportunity to ask questions about Iceland (wanted more time for that, too!) I could have hung out with Mia for twice the time!
