Customer testimonials

Our geology walk included a peaceful hike up a the slopes surrounding the village for some beautiful views of of Isafjordur. It really made our stay special. Definitely wear your hiking boots and dress in layers. Thank you so much, Ms. Helga! (2019)

Great experience in nature: we booked a walk with Helga, on which she led us through nature. Often we stopped to learn more about the formation of Iceland, to take a closer look at stones, even through Helga´s loupes. We learned a lot about crystals and the colors of the rocks. A rewarding experience. (2019)

Great knowledge transfer! All attention, Helga's knowledge is also in front of the geologist! We had a wonderful time in nature and have looked more closely at rocks and minerals and learned about their origin. (2019)
