Supernatural Iceland: UFOs

Welcome to Supernatural Iceland! In this episode we visit the wild and majestic Snæfellsnes peninsula to talk about a supernatural occurrence that’s quite literally out of this world: UFOs.

There have been at least 170 documented incidents of UFO sightings or contacts in Iceland and of those stories, The UFO Association in Iceland (Sálarrannsóknarfélag Íslands) figure that 30 of those can be said to be “credible”. Not only that, the US Army has also listed 19 cases of UFOs in Iceland.

We visit Snæfellsnes to cover one of the most famous stories involving aliens in Iceland and tell you about UFO sightings that have made the papers in Iceland over the years.

Supernatural Iceland is the series where we take a deep dive into the fantastic folk tales of Iceland. Join Valur Grettisson, editor-in-chief of Reykjavík Grapevine, as he explores the world of folklore, other-worldly visits and strange happenings in Iceland. Meet ghosts, ghouls, goblins and even UFOs as we travel around the country seeking out the the strange and unusual.
