Southcoast Adventure

- Ice Climbing and Glacier Walk

Meeting point - Brú-Road 249

Specializes in tailor-made private & luxury tours and all kinds of day trips around Iceland. Open schedule tours or private.

Southcoast Adventure was established in 2009 by Þorgerður Guðmundsdóttir and Ársæll Hauksson. To begin with, there was just ONE jeep that was used to offer trips to tourists and mostly Icelanders who wanted to see more of their beautiful country. 2 years later, their first member of staff was hired. The company today has 28 vehicles of all shapes and sizes, including snowmobiles and 4×4 buggies.

Initially, daily trips were offered to Eyjafjallajökul, Þórsmörk, and Fimmvörðuháls. Today the company has grown considerably and daily trips are offered in many vehicles to many destinations; snowmobile and buggy trips; twice, daily departures to the ice cave; trips transporting luggage for those clients who are doing hikes to the various glaciers, mountains, and the interior; glacier ice-hikes as well as those up mountains and further inland.

All of this as well as custom-made trips/adventures for those who have a thirst for something off the beaten track. Many of the staff are also active members of the local Search and Rescue and this obviously is an added bonus when dealing with Icelandic nature and the sometimes rugged environment. Thankfully their special skills have not often been called upon but it is a reassuring skill to have.

No two days are the same and there is always a feeling of excitement for the next day at work and what adventures it may bring. The company prides itself on building incredible trips and memories for all of our clients, both locals and foreigners. Staff/guides are always encouraged to extend their knowledge as much as possible so that all clients are satisfied and the company aims to always improve their service. As mentioned, most of the staff/guides are from the surrounding areas – this is a huge advantage as it means that when needs arise, the local knowledge makes for a more comfortable working environment.
