Galdrastafir is an iPhone app dedicated to the nature, myths and art of The Icelandic Westfjords. The project is supported by Westfjords Culture Ministry, Youth in Action, and VaxVest.
Galdrastafir encourage people to travel the Westfjords and enrich their experience by collecting the exclusive pieces of a Westfjords puzzle via iPhone at the exact destinations they were created for. The App is finally live in app store, available in Icelandic and English.
The word “Galdrastafir” is the name of ancient Icelandic symbols used in magic. The Westfjords are the home of Icelandic sorcery and witchcraft dated back to the 17th century. If you carry one of these magic symbols, you don’t possess magic – but you can render the supernatural.
