The Icelandic Elf School, known as Álfaskólinn in Icelandic, is a school in Iceland that teaches students and visitors about Icelandic folklore.

The school teaches about the hidden people and the 13 different kinds of elves that the school believes inhabit the country of Iceland. According to the school’s headmaster, hidden people “are just the same size and look exactly like human beings, the only difference is that they are invisible to most of us. Elves, on the other hand, aren’t entirely human, they’re humanoid, starting at around eight centimetres.” He also claims there are gay and lesbian elves. The school is located in Reykjavík, the country’s largest city.
