Guides & Staff

We are proudly built on a foundation of professional, qualified, fun, and energetic staff, whose passion for the great outdoors and the fellow human being runs deep. We like to think our standards in safety and service quality to be hard to match. All of our guides are certified in wilderness first aid and possess the relevant leadership and rescue qualifications. Our office staff is an enthusiastic bunch who strives to give their best every day – whether they are working in sales, marketing, finance, operations, HR or something else. We can also brag about a great team of mechanics in the garage, making sure that all our vehicles run smoothly every day.

The Arctic Adventures family consists of interesting people from all over. We all share the need of being professional, each in our own field, and everyone holds something unique that the rest of the family values highly. Some are passionate mountain climbers while others thrive on numbers and calculations. But all of us have at least one thing in common; love and respect for nature. That is really the glue that holds the Arctic team together.

Sales

The sales department is a team who knows all our tours by heart, for they have participated in all the tours or have led them as guides. The tour desk at Laugavegur 11 is open every day from 08:00-22:00 for bookings and inquiries about our products. Feel free to drop by and meet our welcoming tour desk staff who will help you find the perfect adventure. You can also contact us at info@adventures.is.

Operations

Some even say that operations are the heart of the company.
