Address of the Fjallkona (Fjallkona (Mountain Woman)) 1944

The address of the Fjallkona (Fjallkona (Mountain Woman)) is given every year, on the first weekend of August, on the Icelandic Day in Gimli. It is customary for an elderly woman to play the part of the Fjallkona (Fjallkona (Mountain Woman)). This role is considered a great honour.

"Never before has the Fjallkona (Fjallkona (Mountain Woman)) greeted you so happy in spirit..."
Soffía Wathne in the role of the Fjallkona (Fjallkona (Mountain Woman))
Recorded from Benedikt Gröndal's journey to Canada, 1944 (Icelandic National Broadcasting Service, 1945)
