A very interesting tour in beautiful nature. It was really fun. Helga has also responded very individually to our wishes and needs. Worthwhile. (2019)
We learned a lot about the Icelandic flora. Helga knows a lot about it. We have learned a lot of new about the plants native to us. Now we know what you can eat. On the trails that we would never have found without Helga, we really enjoyed nature. Thanks, Helga. (2019)
We had a very nice last minute Botanical tour with Helga on the hills of Isafjordur on a very sunny day in early June 2019. We were very curious about the Icelandic plants and got many confirmations and interesting additions to our knowledge so far
