About Us

 

Here is a little something about us:

Geo Travel is a small family run adventure tour operator in the Mývatn area in North of Iceland.

Geo Travel offers super-Jeep tours, private tours and day tours, hiking and snow shoe tours in the North and east parts of Iceland. We focus on small groups so we can offer personal service and give our guests the flexibility to stop wherever they want on the way to take photos and enjoy the landscape.

Geo Travel was founded by local park rangers who have worked for Vatnajökull national park in Askja and Herðubreiðarlindir and for the Environment Agency of Iceland in Mývatn, Today Geo Travel is run by two local families

The company follows an ecological and sustainable policy.   Our tours have minimal impact on the environment and comunity; therefore those who come after us will also see the untouched wilderness. The goal of our tours is to give our guests a unique experience and at the same time to have a positive impact on the local community and also to support nature conservation work in the area.

Geo Travel is a Carbon offset company.    We support local farmers (Baldursheimur) to restore eroded land.   Our program is sanctioned by Soil Conservation Agency of Iceland. In 2017 We will also start our Own tree plantation at Hólasandur desert area north of Lake Mývatn.  There we will plant Icelandic trees to carbon offset our tours.

Safety is the first priority of our company. To fulfill our safety standards our guides must be local people and very experienced jeep drivers and mountaineers.      Most of our guides are active members of the local search and rescue team and certified in wilderness first aid.  WFR.

If you want a personal tour with a small group of people guided by experienced local guides, you choose Geo Travel.
