Arctic Adventures

Hi, I noticed someone else asked about Arctic Adventures and got no feedback. Has anyone tried them?

I have my own rental car so I don't need their transport, but I am concerned about hiking by myself. One, it's more fun with other people (I'm driving alone). Two, I'd be afraid of getting lost. So I'm considering Arctic Adventues for Porsmark, Landmannalaugar, and perhaps some other longer hikes.

Am I being paranoid about my ability to be my own guide, or to find new friends along the hike?

I think it depends on what places you are wanting to hike to if you want to go solo or tour group.
The hikes that we went on, we had others on the trail too. I’d research the specific hikes and see if others have commented on the specific trail.
We always ran into people where we parked our car and asked about the trail (those that looked like they were leaving) or would chat with people coming from the opposite trail direction.

Hope this helped.
