Elín Lóa Baldursdóttir

Elín Lóa hails from Ísafjörður but spent most of her life in Mosfellsbær. She has also lived in Ecuador, Cuba, and Hawaii. She started doing hiking tours in the summer of 2010 but only part time. Being a guide combined many of the things that she loves to do. It was also a way of living outside of Reykjavík, which allowed her to explore Iceland, work in the mountains, and meet interesting people.

Before joining our team as a guide, she was a hut warden, park ranger in Askja, and worked in a youth center. Her interests include traveling, photography, and languages. Elín Lóa’s favorite places in Iceland are her family’s old house Vonarland in Djúpið in the Westfjords and Askja in the north of Iceland.
