Customer Reviews

“Awesome Trek...This hike offers a rich variety of sceneries in remote areas. While it was my fifth time in Iceland, I enjoyed everything: mosses, volcanoes, glaciers, river crossings, black sand and rhyolite mountains...The organization was perfect thanks to our guide Sölvi. He is a beautiful person, very friendly with sense of humour, professionalism and excellent cooking skills. Thanks to him and the other hikers for their good mood and company during these ten days.”
