History of Iceland

Viking history in Iceland traces back to the 9th century when Norse settlers, from Norway, established the first permanent settlements on our tiny island in the North Atlantic.  To illustrate, Ingólfur Arnarson was one of these Vikings who sought new lands and opportunities.  Likely spurred by overpopulation and political issues in his homeland.  They encountered challenging environments, battling harsh winters, volcanic eruptions, and extremely limited resources, yet adapted to the rugged terrain.

Iceland’s government Althing, established in 930 AD, became the world’s oldest functioning parliament.  This showcased the Vikings’ commitment to democratic principles.  Icelanders also maintain strong cultural ties to their Norse roots, preserving sagas and myths through oral tradition, which would later be recorded in writing.  Viking influence in Iceland endured for centuries, shaping the island’s identity and leaving a lasting legacy in its language, culture, and legal traditions. Therefore, why not step back in time with our Ice Pic Journeys team to immerse yourself in our Iceland Viking Tours?!
