Just spent 11 days on the most amazing adventure with Icelandic Mountain Guides. Part one was the Laugavegur Trek, 5 days of hiking from hut to hut with our guide Greta. The scenery was so beautiful and Greta was an amazing guide, cooking and watching out for 15 of us. Her and her husband did an excellent job of making sure all of our food and necessities were transported between huts.
Part two started with a flight to Kulusuk, Greenland. This is where the adventure part started to get real. As we walked away from the airport towards the small village, we were greeted by howling sled dogs and colorful houses. Here you start to realize you're in a whole different culture. This part of the trip involved quite a bit of labor as your gear is transported between campsites by boat. Luckily the nine of us in our group were always ready to jump in and get things moved around so camp could be setup quickly and efficiently.
Our guide Thora was awesome. You could really see her passion for Greenland and that she loved every bit of her job. Greenland is very rugged and untouched, and Thora had no problems leading us over all the different types of terrain. The hiking was very challenging and also very rewarding at the end of the long days. You will not see another person for the entire time you are hiking and camping.
We were also lucky to meet some other members of the Icelandic Mountain Guides team while in Greenland. This company is top notch and based on all my experiences, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for adventure travel while in Iceland or Greenland.
