About us

Arctic Adventures is one of the biggest adventure tour operators in Iceland. Our primary goal is to utilize our passions and strengths to bring you an incredible experience and a long lasting impression of our beloved country. We operate many of our tours from the headquarters in Reykjavik but also have operation locations in Skaftafell, Ísafjörður, Drumbó and Skagafjörður. Our roots lie back to the first rafting tour on the Hvítá river in 1983. We wanted to give others the same adventure we experienced and became the first adventure company founded in Iceland.

Most of the tours presented on our website are OUR TRIPS operated by our ambitious team, but we make a few exceptions and cooperate with tour operators that meet the high standards we have set for ourselves. Our quality equipment and certified crew are the core ingredients that make up a guaranteed recipe for an adventure of a lifetime. Our guides are highly trained world travelers and natural born leaders, assuring complete safety throughout every trip. As avid explorers and outdoor enthusiasts, we prioritize an extremely safe environment to all of our customers at all times.

Arctic Adventures is a certified participant in VAKINN, the official quality and environmental system in Icelandic tourism run by the Icelandic Tourist Board.

Over time, our company has expanded and evolved, offering vast improvements and opportunities for our customers to get a real authentic taste of Iceland. Our foundation lies in our most popular day tours; River Rafting, Snorkeling, Glacier Hiking, Super Jeep tours, Sea Kayaking, Diving, Snowmobiling, Hiking, Hot Spring Hunts, Ice climbing and many more.
