About This Video

This video was uploaded to the YouTube channel Dead Air in August 2019.

The Hvítárnes by the Hvítárvatn hut is regarded as the most haunted location in Iceland. Situated in the country’s highlands, Hvítárvatn is located more than 30km from the nearest settlement. It has no electricity, WiFi, telephone or running water. It’s impossible to get any mobile phone signal - this really is one of the most remote places in Europe.

But this hut has a dark past. Built on the site of an abandoned village, this area has a legend of a brutal murder, and it is this victim that is said t haunt Hvítárvatn - the female ghost, who for over 80 years, has terrified people who have slept inside. The stories are terrifying. But for one night, Dead Air’s Rob drove for 3 hours through the remote dirt roads to spend the night here...alone.

Many special thanks to Halldór Gunnarsson who studied this hut for his university thesis. Your research and stories helped make this video!

About Dead Air

Dead Air was formed in 2009 by University friends Rob Davies and Chris Felton, originally as a radio show in Newcastle based FM station, NE1fm. The show originally was based around encouraging callers to talk about their own experiences and opinions on the paranormal, as well as monthly live broadcasts from some of the North East's scariest places.

Chris works alongside Alan Robson, the host of Metro Radio's Nightowls and Sky TV's 'Scariest Places on Earth', and plans to make a full return to the show in 2021. Rob has been a radio presenter with NE1fm on the music scene, but is now 100% committed to creating paranormal content for the channel.
