Hofn, Iceland1 contribution
It was a really good experience and informative. I'm writing this a bit long afterwards but the memory of the story and the places we visited lives on in my mind. If you are a guest of Höfn and want a clearer view of the places, history and location, book this tour.

If you are on the way to Höfn you should try Hulda the local guide and take a walk with her. She will give you a good overview of the history and the life in the town. During the tour she also added many personal comments.

My best friend and my brother and I stayed in Hofn for ten days last May and the experience was amazing! My favorite part was taking the Heart of Hofn tour with Hofn Local Guide. It was amazing to learn about the history of this fishing town through the eyes of someone who has longstanding family history there. We loved soaking it up and learning all about this beautiful little town. At the end of the tour we were treated to a variety of local and traditional Icelandic dishes at a very nice restaurant. We thought it would be just a little taste of everything but it was like a full meal and everything was delicious. Overall, the experience was an amazing way to take it slow and really dive into the culture of Hofn. If you are staying in or passing by Hofn, you MUST take the time to see the Heart of Hofn, you won't regret it! (bonus: it's also very affordable!)

We did the "welcome to our home" dinner. Hulda gave us a nice overview of traditional icelandic foods and traditions and we ate with her, her husband, son and grandchildren who were visiting. She was so welcoming and and it was nice to be in her home with family - the food was great and it was really enjoyable to have an opportunity to chat. Highly recommend this.

Thank you so much Joyce, I'm glad you enjoyed your evening. We sure did and my grandchildren were very interested and curious about different languages after "taking part" in our conversation :-)

We visited Höfn during our trip around the ring road. This little town did not disappoint. Taking the heart of Höfn tour was an incredible taste of history from someone that was born and raised there. For Hulda, our guide, this tour is not just a history lesson, but her father was a fisherman that contributed to the foundation of this town. She added a lot of personal touches to the tour as well. The restaurant at the conclusion of the tour was also incredible! Can’t recommend this tour enough! My wife and I had a great time!
