She has been hiking all over the place with her family and friends since she was a little girl. She became a professional guide in 2015 because of her love of travelling around Iceland and hiking. She is also curious about getting to know people from all over the world.
Gróa started working fo the Icelandic Mountain Guides in the summer of 2015 and has mostly been hiking the world renowned Laugavegur with groups. She is an experienced mountain guide. She is also a certified driver guide for small buses, a yoga teacher and has the Wilderness First Responder qualification.
She is very fond of Laugavegur and its surroundings but her very favorite place in Iceland is the northern part of the Westfjords, the so called Hornstrandir, where she has been taking groups on yoga tours.
