About us

 

We are born and raised in Iceland and have been lucky enough to travel all around the country from an early age. Now we enjoy taking people to our favourite places on our volcanic island.

With us you’ll take the road less travelled, avoid crowds and get closer to nature while also checking out the more popular must see natural wonders of Iceland. The often unpredictable weather can play a large role when travelling in Iceland, so flexibility and experience can be the key to a great trip.

Our mission is to maximise the value of your time in Iceland.

An experienced angler with vast knowledge of the best salmon rivers in Iceland, Aron has been mountaineering and riding Super Jeeps in the Icelandic highlands for 30 years. After a career in computers and real estate he now works full time as an adventure guide.


Aron is known for his good taste in food and wine, with his sarcastic humour served as a side dish. He makes five course gourmet meals magically appear on multi day kayaking trips in remote islands and likes to end his glacier hikes by offering crevasse chilled champagne.


Aron sports a degree in Philosophy from the University of Iceland and an MBA degree from Reykjavík University. He is a certified Glacier Guide, a Wilderness First Responder, a Sea Captain and is trained in Global Maritime Distress and Safety System.


He will mess with your head the whole time.
