Höfn Local Guide’s goal is to provide informative, personal and slow-adventure experience in the fishing village of Höfn and its stunning surroundings.
Slow-adventure tourism and slow travel focus on nourishing experience through moderate movement in beautiful nature, peaceful environment and personal communication with the locals.
The slow travel philosophy is a cultural change against the notion that faster is always better. It’s about seeking to do everything at the speed that gives you a chance to connect to the here and now. Slow travel is a state of mind which allows travellers to engage more fully with communities and the locals along the route. It focuses on the journey rather than the destination and gives you the opportunity to slow down and embrace the here and now.
Höfn Local Guide offers a range of guided walking tours in the region around Höfn, along with morning yoga classes and customised private hiking tours. The tours give you the chance to dive into the story and culture of this beautiful fishing village and take a tour to some of the hidden gems close by with a local guide that was born and raised in Höfn. The walks are easy and informative where you can enjoy the magnificent nature and geology, take part in outdoor cooking and taste some of the local foods.
If you think it’s time to turn the phone off, focus on yourself and your connection to nature and the people around you, Höfn Local Guide is the ideal tour company for you.
My friend and I spent a lovely afternoon with Hulda recently. Hulda’s passion for the area and her connection to the town really shone through in her stories. She transformed our experience of Höfn from that of a passer-by to a rich, detailed and informed understanding of its culture and history. The fantastic food in the Pakkhús was a great bonus. Highly recommended!
