The highly rated actress and Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence is to star in a Hollywood film adaptation of the historical novel that lays the trail of this tour. Filming will take place in the upcoming months but when the movie will be released is yet to be made public.
Our focus during this tour is on the novel Burial Rites by Hannah Kent, inspired by the last execution in Iceland and nature at Vatnsnes Peninsula where a big part of the story takes place. You will see how the saga comes alive by trailing each milestone of the novel and at the same time traveling in one of the most beautiful landscapes in Iceland. We also take our time to visit the picturesque Hvítserkur Cliff and historic Fort Borgarvirki.
This is slow travel and there is enough time to explore the sites and imagine this deeply moving story for yourself.
