Description

Join me for this dream like adventure through one of the most magical places on Earth,  Ísafjörður in Iceland.

Ísafjörður has some of the most dazzling sceneries in the world. It is surrounded by mountains with a very unique and beautiful shape. Also, we’ll encounter countless mesmerizing glaciers that have shaped the land of this wonderful place.

Some of the highlights of our trip will be the Seljalandsdalur and Hnífsdalur valleys. We will be surrounded by the most incredible views and the clearest skies.

Moreover, the route we’ll take will be full with pleasing surprises. We’ll visit crystal clear, pristine lakes, with shades of colors that are simply hypnotizing. Then, we’ll admire mountains with carpets of almost fluorescent moss, which give them unique shades, iconic of the peaks in this region.

Also, the colors of the trails and valleys brimming with flowers all around us, turn Ísafjörður into a true paradise. And, we’ll get the opportunity to spot many curious animals that call this place their home. One of the emblematic creatures of this region is the Golden Plover. But, we might just be able to hear it before we see it.

We will hike valley to valley, discovering new wonderful spots and learning everything about this fantastic place. The groups are small, to ensure a more intimate encounter with nature and a more personalized attention.

Additionally this trip is open for everyone. You don’t need any previous experience hiking. And I will take into careful consideration all your requests. So we’ll be setting the itinerary based on your desires and the group that is joining us.

If you want to explore the beautiful Ísafjörður, don’t hesitate. Send me a request. It will be my absolute pleasure to guide you across this magnificent land.

During the summer of 2019 there will be departures on monday, thursday and saturday. 

But, if you are looking for a different type of adventure, I also guide this 6 day kayaking tour in the fjords of Iceland.

About the guide

guide profile img

I hold a degree in geography and started my guiding career as a mountain biking and hiking guide in the summer for different adventure companies in Iceland. I also worked as a tourism consultant for few years but felt it was time to put my skills into practice and put up an adventure operation in cooperation with other good people.

I was a boy scout when I was younger and learned to love the outdoors, especially the mountains. Skiing, ice & rock climbing and kayaking are my favorite sports and a part of his job. I have for years led mountaineering and avalanche SAR courses for the Icelandic Rescue Team Association.

Among other things, I have scaled 6000 m peaks in Peru, done skiing and kayaking expeditions in Greenland, climbed in the Alps few times and done paragliding in the Pyrenees.

I have finished WFR first aid training, hold a BCU 4 star kayaking certificate, have finished my marine CTCW training to be qualified as a professional crew member and Canadian Level I and Level II avalanche training.

My great experience and expertise means that you're in safe hands.
