ICELAND BY HELICOPTER :: Over seven hundred years ago, the Poetic Edda, written in Iceland, captured the earliest known lore of the Vikings which had been passed down through word of mouth. Little wonder that this rugged, brooding landscape, alive with fire and frozen with ice, was the birth place of the rich Nordic myths.

Today travellers to Iceland are privileged to witness this same spectacular land, virtually unchanged and barely touched by human progress. Join us as we soar over a magical vista in a journey into the extraordinary, accompanied by the remarkable and haunting electric violin music of Ed Alleyne-Johnson which draws its inspiration from a U2 classic.

The Poetic Edda is a collection of Old Norse poems primarily preserved in the Icelandic mediaeval manuscript Codex Regius. Along with Snorri Sturluson's Prose Edda, the Poetic Edda is the most important extant source on Norse mythology and Germanic heroic legends, and from the early 19th century onwards has had a powerful influence on later Scandinavian literatures, not merely through the stories it contains but through the visionary force and dramatic quality of many of the poems.
