We operate under his protection and by his values. We are great admirers of nature and we seek every opportunity to get the "alone in the world experience" wherever we are.
We only operate with private small groups through local people with emphasis on luxury and high quality local products and services around the island that give our customers a better understanding of the Icelandic way of life, our history, our traditions and our untouched nature.
