Iceland tours

Reykjavik Outventure

The reason why you travel, is because you want to experience magic. You want to experience the feeling which you get from watching all the videos & pictures you see online about a destination.
So why should you settle for anything but the best?

What Jóhann – the founder of Reykjavik Outventure – has been doing while building up the leading travel company in Iceland and beyond, is to raise the standard of the quality of the tours by levels.

Reykjavik Outventure was founded in 2018, and did what everyone else did: offering average service but selling it as a premium service.
However, that module was miles away from being what Johann wanted.

Why should travellers be unhappy when they are on their dream vacation?
Or why should they be “just satisfied“ when they want to experience magic?
When they have high expectations but only to leave Iceland with a feeling of; it was ok, and not exceptional!

We decided we wanted to everything differently and offer absolutely first class service throughout.
That’s why Reykjavik Outventure has been the most exciting travel company in Iceland lately and has the fastest growing 5 star ratings since Reykjavik Outventure took off again after COVID.

Reykjavik Outventure stands out from everyone else when it comes to quality and is in a league of its own.
Our team consists of many of the best guides in the business that make a great experience, exceptional!
You as a travellers should never settle for anything less than the best.
This is when magic happens.

Reykjavik Outventure’s Team

Elsa the queen

queen, queen, queen and queen

Elsa is the heart of Reykjavik Outventure.

This company could not operate without her.
Although she is not involved with day to day business, she takes care of the children, house, she runs to buy cinnamon buns, hot chocolate and what is needed when no one else can do it.

She has saved Reykjavik Outventure´s face multiple times 🙂

And no decision is made without she having the last word. Because she is the real BOSS.

What To Do In Iceland

Jóhann THE Viking

Director of operation & owner

Jóhann or Jói is a funny guy who speaks a lot (in a good way) and loves telling stories. He’s very open, although he thinks of himself as being shy. His hair has started to fall out but he doesn’t mind, so it’s alright to stare. A good guy who enjoys swimming in the – 2°C ocean in all weather conditions and plays football (real football: soccer). He eats red meat for every meal (even breakfast) and is always up for an adventure!
Jóhann used to be a fisherman from the age of 11. He went to the Navigation School in Iceland and learned to become a captain on ships. He is a father to two children and takes care of all the marketing and sales at Reykjavik Outventure along with entertaining on the Northern Lights tours.

Jóhann has taken 3 courses studying weather in Iceland. So you can say he’s a weather specialist 🙂

There are not many that study Northern Lights like he does. He absolutely loves to study how they appear.

The KINg baltasar

Decision maker & CEO I

Baltasar is the son of Jóhann. He is the Decision maker at Reykjavik Outventure and all ideas and decisions have to go through him. If he smiles, that means yes. If he starts to cry, that also means yes. Luckily, he always smiles. At Reykjavik Outventure’s office, he is called the King. That’s because he always wants to let us hold him. You could get lucky while in Iceland and meet “the King”. It is hard not to smile when around this ol’ toothless guy 🙂
Baltasar has a degree from the University of Iceland in being the most adorable baby in the world. He can be adorable in so many ways.

team member

Ása is old but gold

Sales director

Oh Ása oh Ása.

Thank God for her!

She took Reykjavik Outventure to a different level.

Jóhann the owner and Ása Sales Director are absolute polars.

Ása is a vegan while Jóhann is a carnivore.

But they are the perfect match and Reykjavik Outventure could not have found a more suitable person.

She is super organised and thinks about every little detail on everything.

Not only does she have red hair, but she also also speaks 9 languages.

Yes! She speaks 9 of them.
Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, English, Icelandic, French, German, Spanish & little bit of Finnish.

She has 2 super powers! Red hair and 9 languages.

You wont meet her on a tour though. But you might meet her at one of our Exhibitions 🙂

Jóhann Guðni Jóhansson


Sales manager

Sæmi is one of the kindest person you can meet.
He is our sales manager and takes care of all incoming inquiries and make sure you will have the time of your life here in Iceland.

He has never been addicted to coffee or tee.
So he only drinks water here at the office.

There are worse habits to have than that 🙂

female visitor

queen Eseandre

our blogger

Eseandre is the oldest employee of Reykjavik Outventure.

Starting in 2019 when we first needed a blogger.

Not only is she a fantastic writer, but she also has great humour and one would think she is a model.

She’s a graduate from university of Bradford where she learned her writing and fantastic English.

Bence alt mulig mand

Operation assistant manager

Bence used to be the chocolate master at Reykjavik Outventure.

All the great Trip Advisor reviews you’ve read about the delicious hot chocolate, is because of him!
But then he resigned from that job and is now our “alt mulig mand” or operation assistant manager to put it into some fancy words
That means he does a little bit of everything here at Reykjavik Outventure.
But mainly helping to keep the operation running smoothly and being Gosi’s right hand.

Gosi the first

operation manager

Gosi is one of a kind.
He’s probably the most reliable person that you could ever find.

That’s why he fits perfectly for the most difficult job at the company.

He always has a smile on his face and loves to have a good beer and a cigar.

Our Driver Guides

iceland tour guide

Magnús the viking

driver guide & weird but fun

Magnús is a super lovely person. But super weird as well. But also SUPER fund!

He actually owns the house where Reykjavik Outventure keeps all of its buses.

So if he doesn’t get his pay-check, then Reykjavik Outventure doesn’t have any home anymore.

Magnús drives Týr.
Týr was the funny God which made all the jokes.
Just kidding.
But welcome on board on Týr.

He gets on with everybody and there is always fun on his tours.

He knows how to keep up positive and great energy on the tours.

He sold his Porsche to buy a dog.

Daniel the r9

the driver guide we finally got

Reykjavik Outventure had been trying for months to get Daniel on the team.

Getting Daniel was like getting Ronaldo the Brazil one finally on our team.

Daniel drives Thor! That’s because if there is the slightest chance of seeing Northern Lights, Daniel will find them! Because he is the weather God Thor.

Not only is Daniel a workaholic but he also runs a vegan fast food place in Iceland.

He eats carrots for breakfast and tomatoes for dinner.

Then he goes out to entertain tourists.

Going out with Daniel once? You will ask to do it again!
He’s addictive.

Or at least it looks like it when travellers come from his tours.



experienced driver guide

Palli is one of the most experienced driver guides in Iceland.

It is difficult to get old dogs like him that are great entertainers, but he truly is good at what he does!

Palli can do literally anything there is to do in Iceland, except flying a Helicopter or an airplane.
At least not that we know of.

He is also a red head cutie like Bjartmar.

I am not sure if he was ever in the model business like Michael. But he could have a career there.

Icelandic Festivals


our photographer & driver guide

André is our Portuguese speaking guide!
He is one of the sweetest persons we have ever met.

If you get on a tour with him, you will be lucky since he is a great entertainer and also a complete gentleman.

André also has a hidden quality that is not hidden at all!
He is a photographer and a videographer.

So if you get on a private tour with us and want a photographer, then ask for André 🙂


Joanna the smiley one

driver guide

Joanna fits perfectly into our team of guides.

We pride ourselves of having many of the best guides in the business and the best team of guides.

Joanna fits into that category.

It’s impossible not to smile on a day with her.
She just lights up every room she walks into 🙂

Michael model

driver guide & a model

The minute I saw this photo of Michael, I had to put it online. This photo does not reflect him at all 🙂

He is not the type of person who sits top naked for modelling. But he is a comedian though.

Michael is one of the most experienced guides in Iceland and has done it all.

He is sweet, patience, relaxed and has a great serious humor.

He is truly an elite guide like the rest of our team are.

Lava tours iceland

Bjarni big

Northern lights guide

Bjarni is our big bear.

He is one of the main Northern Lights guide in our team and drives a moderated Sprinter on bigger tires.

He has few stories and jokes in his pockets and is a fantastic person to be around.

His only flaw is he supports Liverpool.

But we can live with that.
