Reviews from Clients (Laugavegur trek)

  • "The trip was amazing. Solve (apologies on the spelling!), our guide, was incredible. Such a wonderful demeanour. He is incredibly knowledgeable, but also passionate about Iceland, the wilderness, and its history. His passion, to me, made all the difference. While there were difficult moments on the trip, this did not seem like work for Solve. He was generous with his knowledge and always excited to explain some bit of history, geology or cultural titbit".
  • "Sölvi, and the charming Silja who normally works in the office, along with the camaraderie that which soon developed between the 7 guests. Solvi’s enthusiasm for and detailed knowledge of all things Icelandic, especially geology but also the history, culture for flora and fauna was infectious and encyclopedic". Trevkrog
