We are proud to maintain the excellent reputation of Local Guide and we pride ourselves on hiring local guides with an excellent knowledge of the area and the island as a whole and offering small group tours to enhance your experience.
Whilst the company was established in 1991, we are three generations of glacier guides and up to five generations of explorers in the area. One of the first men to climb the highest summit in Iceland, Hvannadalshnúkur, on the 17th of August 1891, was my great grandfather Páll Jónsson.
In the summer months we offer hiking on the glacier with half day hikes, family tours and full day advanced tours for those who want an even greater adventure on the ice. During the winter months, from October to March, we offer ice caving tours.
Me and my father were the first people to offer regular ice cave tours in Iceland and we are continuing to offer this service. We strive to find the best available caves to offer the best experience possible for our guests.
Our Local Guide office is a powerful combination of different backgrounds, passions, cultures and multiple strenghts. Unquestionably, we share love to icelandic nature and we are all passionate about hiking and exploring this country. We all have years of experience in travel industry, customer service jobs, event organization, marketing, management and so on.
Our greatest goal is to make our company always being professional and authentic to what we stand for and we want to make sure you will receive the best experience throughout the entire process of getting into one of our tours. We want to make sure you will simply have a great adventure with us!
