The highlight of our trip

  • Christine Mitterbauer
  • From Denmark
“We had an absolutely fantastic day with our guides (see the big Viking guy on the picture). The hike brought us past some of the most stunning scenery weve ever seen, including hidden waterfalls and caves. They were also very knowledgeable about any of the many questions we threw at them! Highly recommend”
