Guðmundur Valdimarsson, who founded the company in 2013 on his wife’s 50th birthday, is an expert at extreme driving, hiking and hunting all over Iceland.

Create Your own Adventure
In the comfort of the jeeps, controlled by experienced drivers, adventurous travellers can create their own customised Icelandic adventure, whether it is enjoying traditional fare and decadent desserts made by local restaurants and bakeries or hiking to the top of Kaldbakur (998 metres/3,274 feet), the highest mountaintop in the Westfjords. They can view unique and breath-taking vistas, landscapes, and waterfalls, discover sea life, birds and animals in their natural habitats, experience the summer midnight sun or the exhilarating northern lights in the winter. Drive on the high and narrow winding roads of the mountains or simply relax, year round, in the calming natural hot springs.dsc00800
