Çfarë do të bësh

The history of Iceland began 1,200 years ago when a frustrated Viking captain and his useless navigator ran aground in the middle of the North Atlantic. Slaves in tow, they wintered near modern-day Húsavík harbor where we begin our 11K running tour through a natural reserve--and Iceland's history. Told in six milestones, guests learn about Vikings, medieval Sagas, Denmark's colonialism, volcanos and earthquakes, climate change, and Nazi attacks on Húsavík. All the while experiencing wild nature and stunning scenery.

Last year, I moved to Húsavík for the second time in my life to complete a book about the history of Iceland, titled "How Iceland Changed the World: Big History of a Small Island." Between writing this debut non-fiction, I spent a lot of time running: along the beach, up the mountain, around the lake, between the trees. Now, a year into my stay, the book is finally going to print and my American publisher suggested an "online-driven" promotion. This is what I came up with! An invitation to explore the area around Húsavík and learn about the history of Iceland in six parts; six stops.

The 11-kilometer running path I've chosen for this tour stretches from the harbor to the Botnsvatn lake, via the public park. The running pace is adjusted each time; the group's size, level of fitness, and weather conditions. The pace? Never under six minutes per kilometer, usually slower. The idea is to enjoy the place and time together, as we loop Lake Botnsvatn's birdlife, berry land and bush paths. On the last and longest break, we snack.

Egill’s historical running tour takes you through beautiful terrain. It starts at a viewpoint of the harbor in Husavik, up through a stream-lined trail to a remote lake situated next to a mountain. Egill even brought snacks for half way! Our pace was flexible, fluctuating between 9:30-11:30/mile for the 7 miles. We had nice weather on dry trails and wore trail running shoes which were more than fine, robust road shoes would work too. We wound up peppering Egill with questions about Iceland so the history was a little light, but the conversation and friendship were a blast. Would do again!
