Burial Rites Tour, North Iceland


Hannah Kent’s 2013 novel Burial Rites, based on real events in 17th-century Iceland, moved readers and inspired a fascination for the pristine beauty of Iceland and the hardships of Icelandic life.

Due to the popularity of the novel, Bentours has introduced a ‘Burial Rites Tour in North Iceland’ – a five-day tour that focuses on the locations of the chilling novel.

The guided tours allow Australians to visit the historical sites for the first time and to connect with the characters and events that inspired the book.

Focusing on the hauntingly beautiful Vatnsnes region of North Iceland, the tour will visit the popular historical and cultural town of Akureyri and Reykjavik, the lively capital city.
