Whether in summer, winter, by car, on horseback or dog sled, for sea angling or to go on a cruise - we plan and organize tailor-made trips for different target groups.

In addition, we use our expertise in planning incentives and events, as well as organizing programs for companies, clubs and conferences - for more than 23 years. With Hotel Ísland, our latest portfolio member, we are now also able to offer our guests high quality accommodation for their stay in Reykjavik.
