Saga lead us through a memorable experience. I found the pace and distance covered to be just right. Laugavegur trail in Iceland is rated one of the top through hikes in the world for good reason. This hike is a great way to experience the land of fire and ice.

Shaley Howard (source: 57hours )

What a fantastic experience! Hiked with 16 women from all over the world through sunshine, wind and cold rain! Sometimes tough, rugged terrain but stunning! When you complete something like this hike you can’t help but grow and come away feeling incredible! A wonderful bonding experience and Saga our guide was knowledgeable, patient and very accommodating! Highly recommend! Saga was wonderful! Always making sure we were doing well, patient with those who were more beginner hikers and helped to create an extremely memorable experience I’ll cherish forever! She’s very knowledgeable and was able to answer a variety of questions we continually threw at her. She also provided this hike exclusively for women which I’m certain is appealing to many. She made hiking in Iceland feel safe, welcoming and like anyone could do it.

Lisa Green (source: 57hours )

Saga Lif is aptly named as she and her Viking Woman Tours will lead you on an unforgettable and EPIC Icelandic adventure. The group dynamic that she facilities creates a fun and supportive environment for any traveller of any ability. Saga\’s organization, attention to detail, patience, and problem solving made this trip run so smoothly that the only thing we had to do was lace up our boots and enjoy the scenery. Our advice to anyone who is thinking about travelling with Viking Women is – Don\’t hesitate and say yes to everything she suggests (even when your tired) because she knows all of the best places off the beaten track. The Great Voyage Trip has left us with memories and friends that will last a lifetime.

Waiting for Saga to plan her next adventure, Lisa and Natalie.

Chloe Mariani (source: 57hours )

A fabulous adventure led by an incredible guide, which I will never forget!

Carmen Beauregard (source: 57hours )

Saga is a very nice person, well organise, calm and patient with all the clients. The trekk is fantastic, the food good, but i would have prefer better bread for the sandwiches (hi hi) , the group was not homogenous in the physical fitness, but it was ok. Every one help each others. Generosity was present in the group.

Carmen Beauregard (source: 57hours )

Very nice saga, calm and ready for the adventure, speak to every one of the group but respect the rythm of every one.

Natasha Clyde (source: 57hours )

Saga is extremely well versed in the area and the lore and history of the Laugavegur Trail. She was extremely well organized, ensured there was balanced nutrition for the hikes and ensured that we enjoyed our time on the adventure. When unexpected circumstances came up, she was quick to execute contingency plans which made for a great side adventure. She is knowledgeable, personable and has everyone participating to ensure in a great camaraderie and atmosphere. Would extremely recommend her company if you truly want to explore Iceland! Amazing and breathtaking views, rustic facilities, incredibly adventurous transportation to, during and from the hike. This is not for people that like to “Glamp”. Go in with a great attitude, manage your expectations for accommodations, they are mountain hostels, but you will not be disappointed with the scenery, the sounds, the views or the memories and the sense of accomplishment. Would not recommend this hike if you don’t plan to train for it or do not hike regularly.

Katie Diehl (source: 57hours )

If you are looking for an authentic and unique Icelandic experience then you must do the Laugavegur. Breathtaking and surreal landscape with varied terrain and vegetation. A wonderful opportunity to build real connections and memories. An unforgettable experience. Saga’s endless energy, positivity and sense of fun made the trek even more enjoyable. Saga was able to respond to challenging and changing circumstances with calm and excellent problem solving skills. I felt safe and had complete confidence in her ability. A true brave and strong Viking woman!

Anne-Marie Hurley

Excellent, very knowledgeable. Iceland’s terrain was amazing, the hike was not too difficult. We were lucky to have great weather too

Barbara Havrot (source: 57hours )

I’m sitting in the airport waiting for the final leg home and as the participants photos begin to arrive on our WhatsApp group chat, I can’t help but marvel at the beauty of the Laugavegur trail, the connections that were made, and the physical challenges of the trail. We experienced Mother Nature’s powerful winds which closed roads on our first day, but she was kind and always had us arriving at our destinations in the sunshine. But the hero of our trip was our guide Saga. Despite all the challenges she managed to get us up to the top of the mountain via super jeep (an experience not one of us will ever forget), encouraged each and everyone of us to give our best effort, fed us very well, entertained us with Icelandic stories and most importantly showed us the marvels of the trail with the enthusiasm of someone experiencing Iceland for the first time. Was it challenging for a senior citizen? Yes. Would I do it all again? In a heartbeat.
Thank you Saga, you are not only a Viking woman but a Viking Princess. ❤️

Kristine Clay (source: 57hours )

Brilliant Adventure! Scenery a hard trail but well worth it. My only regret was that the huts were a bit of a challenge being overcrowded and noisy. Even so I would do it again. Saga lead an incredible adventure in the Laugavegur trail of Iceland. She was mindful of the details and So incredibly knowledgeable. Saga\’s energy was amazing and she inspired me to Believe in my learning and ability — some thing I\’m very proud of having accomplished. I would definitely join Saga on another adventure and hope to go back to Iceland to do another Trail as soon as possible.

Kelly B.

I spent a week traveling around the gorgeous scenery of Iceland with Saga and let me say–she is an incredible host. Not only is her knowledge of the country vast, she is also patient and caring for all of her guests. As a solo female traveler, Saga made me feel like I was just on a holiday with friends! Whether it was a glass of wine, history lesson, or trek on a glacier – she guided us through those experiences with ease and intrigue. Her itinerary was the perfect combination of adrenaline-packed adventures and relaxation. All said and done, I can’t recommend Saga and Viking Women enough, solo female travelers and friend groups alike.

Bee A.

My time in Iceland was truly life-changing and I have to give a special thanks to Saga for leading such a memorable experience! From her passion for her country, the culture, and adventure in nature, every moment was truly inspiring. Now when I think of “happy places” my favorite memories were our hike up Reykjadalur Valley to the hot river and our walk on Sólheimajökull Glacier that ended with a meditation underneath the sun and a rainbow! I will absolutely be back to explore even further with Viking Women.

Katherin J.

Saga will take you on an amazing journey through Iceland! Whether it be a hike or a cave dive! Or even a road trip! Get ready to be shown highlights and small gems off the beaten paths! Filled with wonderful moments you will never forget! Listen to tales of elves and trolls while being surrounded by Iceland’s natural splendor! If you want a guide who has the knowledge and is passionate about showing you their country look no further than Saga!

CHERYCE MALLETTE

Kata was the best and did her best. Always with a smile, she had to manage the unexpected horrible weather and 16 women of various skill level.

Barbara Ridley

Kata was an incredible guide – stellar in every way. We had very challenging weather mainly on the first long day of hiking and the group was mixed in terms of hiking and mountain experience. Kata handled the situation with skill, good grace and humor. She made the trip wonderful. The scenery is wonderful once the clouds lift enough to see it.

Sue Ellen Wilder

Snaesa was just amazing at keeping the group happy and informed. Balancing the needs of mixed age and ability hikers so that everyone felt success was tricky and she didn’t disappoint. Iceland is absolutely beautiful and Viking Women are a guides. 15/10

Lisa Serro

This was a trip of a life time!!! With that being said you really do need to take this adventure seriously. If you have knee hip or ankle issues. This is not the trip for you. Before this trip you should do some training. Walk some hills up and down. Do some stairs up and down. Also put carry a bag with at least 20 pounds. This trip is about being comfortable with uncomfortable. Keep and open hind train pack smart and this is a trip you will not regret!

Jodie Bernard

We could not have asked anything more from our guide Snaesia. She was knowledgeable, patient and kind. Being an Icelandic local, she added a lot of value and interest to the hike on lcelandic culture and landscape. I did this hike with members of my family and when one was having a physical obstacle, she quickly stepped in to lead her to success. She has a bright future and I would hike with her again. The group was 15 hikers and could have benefited from a second guide to manage hikers that were struggling. It was a lot of responsibility for one person. The hike was challenging and provided a beautiful variety of landscapes. There was a lot of extreme climbing up and down – all achievable if you have a baseline of fitness. Our guide had a break every 5km or so we could keep up with our nutrition and rest. The huts were great. Cozy, warm and some had beer! Our guide made amazing meals in the evening that ranged from fresh salmon, pasta and lamb. They also accommodated hikers that were gluten free and vegetarians. I would do this hike again.

Deanna Prosper

Snaessa was a great guide. A native Icelander who’s very knowledgeable and kept us entertained 🙂 Although advertised as beginner hike when i booked it was a little more advanced but do-able. Definitely have to have some hiking experience and be ready to walk walk walk for up to 10 or more km a day. Although challenging, I’m glad I did it.

Lynn Gettis

Sneasa was a fabulous guide. She handled everything very professionally. Never dreamt it would be so memorable.

Amy Dedow

Snaesa did an excellent job for a large group of women with various abilities. She was a joyful, patience guide.

Natalie Vesey

Senisa was exceptional!

Debra Persico

Sneasa was great! She was responsible, pleasant and confident. She kept us on track and safe.

Julie Lang

Sanaesa was very fun and \”chill.\” She did her very best to accommodate a very large group with very different hiking abilities. The locations were beautiful. Our last minute adjustments to doing two huts instead of a through hike was actually an advantage to not have to move our stuff as much. We loved the hikes out of Dorsmark. Please note that the accommodations are huts with remote bathrooms- you sleep 16 to a room in some cases (so several cases of COVID) but in all honesty it was wonderful experience.

Zeena Cleave

Ingi was great. Could read the energy of the group and pace us accordingly

Nicole Anderson

Ingibjörg was a fantastic guide!
Truly enjoyed her vibe and felt very comfortable with her knowledge of the trail.

Keri Frykas

Our guide Ingibjorg was the absolute best ever!

Kris Waggoner

BEST TRIP EVER!!!! Loved everything about it, and our guide, Thelma, was amazing.
Great guide, amazing food, wonderful energy and a fantastic country.

Would do this hike with Thelma again!

Participants will need to hike up and down steep slopes that sometimes have loose grounds and require good balance. Hikes will involve river crossings on the trail every day except the first. The water level in the rivers changes from time to time due to seasonal conditions. In some cases, you will be able to step from stone to stone to get to the other side. In other cases, you will need to take your shoes and socks off, put on river-crossing shoes and wade the rivers. Neoprene socks and sandals or neoprene shoes (beach shoes) are the best choice.

    For your own well-being and safety, we strongly suggest following the advice of this equipment list. This includes having good quality rain gear, tops, and bottoms.

  • Group sizes and prices:

      • For this adventure, the max client-to-guide ratio is 16:1.
      • This adventure requires a minimum of 8 people to run.

    Hiking in Laugavegur can be arranged for larger groups. Contact us to make arrangements.

    Min. age requirements:

      • If you are older than 18, you’re good to go.
      • Minors younger than 18 may be permitted to join the hike on a case-by-case basis, but must be in the presence of a parent or legal guardian.

    If your group has hikers under the age of 18, contact us prior to booking to make arrangements.

  • To get to Iceland, most people fly into Keflavík International Airport, located 45 minutes from the city center. From there, the best and the cheapest way is to take one of the public busses like Airport Direct or Flybus. Buses leave 35-40 minutes after the arrival of each flight, 24/7.

    Once you and your guide agree on the details of your itinerary, your guide will suggest the best place to meet, whether that’s at the BSÍ bus terminal in Reykjavík or a predetermined location. The guide will choose the appropriate terrain dependent on conditions and the ability of the group.

  • Iceland, the “Land of Fire and Ice”, has forever lived with volcanic activity. Minor and major eruptions have occurred every few years since the island was formed. Some of Iceland’s appeal, aside from sheer natural beauty, surely stems from this very fact.

    However, every new eruption, such as the recent Reykjanes Peninsula fissure, will make some travelers, tourists, and adventurers uneasy, especially given the fact that sensationalist media is not immune to misinformation and speculation.

    Since we work with a number of expert local guides in Iceland, we thought we’d share their input and fill you in on what’s actually going on.

    First of all, air traffic has not been affected. Flights to and from Keflavík International Airport and Reykjavík Domestic Airport are operating as they always do.

    Second, the effects of volcanic activity have been localized, with some roads closed, and all services in Iceland operating as usual. Reykjavik, the capital, is around 40 km (25 miles) away from the volcanic fissure, and life there is as normal as ever. 

    And third, trips offered by 57hours are taking place much further away, and are thereby even less likely to be affected by the volcanic activity, being perfectly safe for adventurers. Naturally, the authorities (and guides) are monitoring the situation and doing everything possible to keep both local residents and visitors safe and well informed.

    In case you have any additional questions or dilemmas, feel free to get in touch with either your guide or 57hours. For more information, please visit:

  • 57hours is committed to providing safe outdoor adventure experiences. We require all guides using our platform to have a COVID-19 safety plan and to make the details of that plan accessible to travelers. In most cases, group sizes will be reduced, guides will avoid overcrowded locations, and other safety measures will be met depending on the location and activity.

    We also expect clients to respect local regulations and take measures to protect themselves, their guides, and the communities they’re traveling to.
