  • Local environment and economy

    Even the most responsible travel leaves an impact. So we strive for a net positive impact on the local environment and economy whilst ensuring the best possible experience for our travellers. We exclusively work with qualified local guides and partners in each port and respect for the eco-system is of utmost importance on our tours.

  • Trust

    Our company is licensed and fully backed by the safety and financial regulations of the Icelandic Tourist Board. In the unlikely event of insolvency, insurance protection covers your payments. So you can book with complete confidence knowing that you and your money are in safe hands.


Our story - arctic shore excursions

Every summer has a story. Ours began many summers ago at our home office in the beautiful port of Isafjordur in Iceland.

It’s hard to plan the perfect trip for people until you get to know them better. Whilst planning shore excursions from Isafjordur, we soon discovered the difficulties faced by cruisers – the absence of budget friendly small group tours, the difficulty in finding tours at smaller ports and the scarcity of reliable tour operators, quality tours and good service.

We took up the challenge to make sure cruisers have a wider choice of great tours across all ports. Since then, we have gradually expanded operations to other parts of Iceland and the Nordic region but the commitment to quality and service has not changed.
