OUR TEAM

TOUR GUIDE

WE SHARE PASSION TO OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES AND WE LOVE TO SHARE OUR EXPERIENCE OF iCELAND WITH YOU.

We operate our tours on the southern side of Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Iceland and Europe. Through guiding, training and recreation we have gained an extensive knowledge of the area and a deep understanding of the glacier.

We are the third generation of the family to operate the glacier tours since they began in 1991. Today, we work with guides who are local to the area and those with special ties to the Öræfi community and glaciers. 

We provide our team with up to date certifications as well as the best and the most reliable glacier equipment available. In investing in our people and our community, we ensure our clients are taken on adventure with professionals and people who love what they do and where they live.
