Why travel with us?
1. Our basecamp is in Iceland
We live in Iceland year round; it is a country we love and our local knowledge is unbeatable. This enables us to run trips in remote destinations and explore those hidden gems which are truly 'off the beaten track'. Our basecamp is in Iceland so we have no need for middlemen; we can provide fair prices for everyone and are able to uphold our strict Responsible Tourism policies.
2. We are experts in Wilderness & Adventure Travel
We offer real adventures, yes a lot of our accommodation choices are rustic but we love our no frills, back to basics options. Why splash out on a fancy hotel and support mass tourism when you spend the night with locals in a warm communal guesthouse eating local food and hearing traditional tales? Our small group sizes enable us to have these authentic adventures in some of the most isolated locations in the world. We take our Sustainable Tourism policies very seriously and carefully monitor our impact on the environment and local communities.
