Rannveig

I constantly consider myself lucky to be Icelandic and live in this incredible destination that Iceland is. Our culture, the Northern Lights, erupting volcanoes and incredible nature provide some of the best holiday experiences you can get. I have spent the last 15 years truly exploring my own country and it continues to amaze me every single day. The weather may be a challenge - we never know what what conditions will be thrown our way - but you can rest assured that every minute is an adventure! Respect for nature is important to all Icelanders and all the partners we work with care for people and for the environment. We are a family business committed to offering our customers the best, true, authentic experiences and nowhere else will you get a more personal service than with us.
