ABOUT ME

Hæ,

My name is Einar Sveinn Westlund and I am 30-year-old Icelandic adventure guide and owner of Feast in the Wild. I love to explore nature, travel and food. I am curious and I like to share what I have learned. For the past 13 years I have lived in 6 different countries including Iceland, Italy, Canada, Finland, France and Denmark. Each country has taught me different things about culture, people and food. In 2014 I graduated with a 2-year Adventure Guide Diploma from Thompson Rivers University in Canada. In 2015 I started to guide. Since then I have guided numerous amount of people that were happy with my service. I always try to learn something new from every group that I guide. In 2020 I learned how to forage wild edible plants from Michael Fitzner of restaurant Noma in Copenhagen for seven months. It is fascinating to learn about the different Nordic flavors that can be found in nature. When guiding I try to be both informative and entertaining.

Looking forward to showing you around the spectacular places in Iceland and meeting you.

Laugavegur trail is a scenic path in the southern highlands of Iceland where geothermal activity meets glaciers and raw landscapes. This is a supported moderate 6-day hike. We will have a highland truck driving hut to hut with our luggage aside from our daypacks. Every day feels completely different from the next. Maximum guests per tour is 8, which is much lower than usually here in Iceland. With such group size we can also travel much easier at the group speed and have extra luxury with the food. For example of what a food in in a day might look like check the full description. Everything is included in this tour from our meet-up point downtown Reykjavík. This tour will be guided by myself, I have guided this tour 25 times so far.

I was so pleased on this trip with Einar and his skill. I was 69 and older than then group, but we all stayed together and I never felt like the pace was to fast. our group were just amazing people from all types of life and we got along fabulously. Highly recommended. Great food, fun conversation and Icelandic beauty. A million laughs.
