Heidi Herman - Live the Adventure of the Fairy Tale

To this day, any time an Icelander meets a stranger, they make sure to always be polite and courteous, sharing food and lodging freely, especially if the stranger is unusually beautiful.  You can never be sure if it’s one of the Huldufolk.


-Excerpt from the short story Huldufólk - The Hidden Folk

From the book "Guardians of Iceland and other Icelandic Folk Tale"
