About the Elfschool

* The Elfschool is open all year around in Reykjavik. The school 29 years old this year. What students in the Elfschool gain and learn is everything that is known about elves and hidden people, as well as gnomes, dwarfs, fairies, trolls, mountain spirits as well as other nature spirits and mythical beings in Iceland and in other countries. And also where these creatures live, what they look like, their ideas about humans, about them as well as all the other nature spirits that seems to live around us here in other dimensions - as the elves themselves claim that they live in.

* The students in The Elfschool learn also about hundreds of Icelanders that have had personal contact with the elves themselves, and many of them have been invited into the homes of the elves and the hidden people in Iceland, and have often eaten food there and sometimes also slept there during one or more nights. – The argument that the elves and Hidden people of Iceland have saved hundreds of lives of Icelanders through the centuries is explored and explained to the students, as well as how this strange friendship between these two or many different worlds and dimensions can and does exists.

* Students learn also many other interesting and sometimes practical things about these beings as well as all this strange phenomenon in general. After the session students can get a private walking-guide to one of the main elf places in Reykjavik (it is about 900 meters away from the school). We charge just 19€ / 21$ for each person for such extra guide after the Elfschool-sessions. There students are told events that took place there in the past, both involving a confrontation as well as a friendship between the humans and the elves some years and decades ago there. For visiting this place students have to book that in advance so the timeplan of the school can fit to it. - The walking guide normally takes about 25 - 30 minutes, as is usually after the school-session, about 19:00.

* The school is based on two major lectures, by the Headmaster of the school, Mr. Magnus Skarphedinsson, (1955-) whom studied history at the Icelandic University 1985 – 1989, and also Ethnology and Anthropolgy some years later at the same University. He has explored a lot of research concerning elves and hidden people and other nature spirits for more than thirty-eight years now in many countries in the world. He has met personally more than 800 Icelanders that have seen and met and talked with elves and hidden people in Iceland or have had a long friendship with them, - and met more than 500 foreigners in these 40 countries he has done researches in also. Mr. Skarphedinsson is also one of the leader of the Paranormal Foundation of Iceland. - All the lectures in the Elfschool are in English. (Or Scandinavian languages for groups from Scandinavia and have a Special session for them. - But only if all the students in that class are from Scandinavia or understand Scandinavian languages).
