Celebrating 20 years of highland tours and expeditions in Iceland
Ísafold Travel is a licensed tour operator and destination management company in Iceland, founded in 1997. During the past two decades we had the privilege to explore in detail the beautiful nature of Iceland, taking away valuable lessons on how to operate tours in the Icelandic Highlands. We have built a network of hundreds of service providers including expert guides, we have trained our own staff in the field, set up base camps in the Highlands and acquired the largest fleet of Land Rover Defenders in Iceland, all of which enables us to operate tours to all corners of Iceland, all year round. If you wish to experience the best hidden, hard-to-reach places in Iceland, we will get you there!
Ísafold Travel is committed to conduct its business and day to day operations in a sustainable way. We emphasise caution and care for the natural environment and we respect the culture, history and background of the people we engage with through our business. Ísafold Travel has worked hard on maintaining long standing mutually beneficial relationships with its customers, co-workers, suppliers and contractors for two decades. It is our mission to be in business for decades to come and to do so we feel it is important to respect our land, our business partners, customers, employees and our community.
Ísafold Travel trades as a fully licensed Travel Agency under Icelandic legislation and is a member of the Icelandic Travel Industry Association.

What our clients say about us
“Two words: unbelievably amazing!
You guys exceeded expectations and every member of the group bonded, laughed, was blown away, soaked up some amazing views and all left plotting our return trip. Despite the low rivers (no big deal just would have been fun) the driving was completely amazing and we could not give higher praise to Kristján. He was a FANTASTIC guide and made the trip, logistics, food, education about Iceland all a super experience. All in all, A++.“

“This was our third itinerary in 20 months with Isafold Travel. We drove a total of more than 5000km of tarmac and F-roads, from the highlands to the glaciers, from the south to the extreme West Fjords. We are a family of 4: 2 kids of age 7 years and 5 years. Isafold and ISAK are the best way to live the Icelandic landscape, on F-roads is where you see the real beauty. Great organisation, tailor-made itinerary, always in a safe and reliable way. Best way to visit Iceland.“

“We were on a tight schedule as we only had 4 days. Many of the tour companies we contacted had fixed schedules that did not work with ours. I came across Isafold Travel through a blog. Our Travel Consultant was Edda. She was consistently responsive, patient with our requests/questions, and put together an amazing package for us. The tour included the Northern Lights, a private driver for 2 days to transport us to activities such as the ice caves, snowmobiling on a glacier, and, of course, the sights along the Golden Circle. Our guide also took us to some off-the-beaten-path sights. On the morning before our flight, Edda also booked a horse riding tour. We were very happy with Isafold Travel and will definitely use their services again when we return to Iceland.“

“As a first time visitor of the magnificent country that Iceland is, I couldn’t have come across a better travel agency to arrange the week long holiday that we undertook just recently. From the planning stages of this trip I felt part of an experience rather than just a customer. The frequent updates, personalized approach and rapid responses made booking and planning this trip of a lifetime like a walk in the park. Fantastic team, great accommodation arrangements. I would definitely recommend Isafold Travel to anyone thinking of visiting Iceland! I for one can hardly wait to book my next holiday!”

“My family enjoyed their stay in Iceland immensely. They loved the places they visited & appreciated the driver/guide lady for being thoughtful and bringing them to nice restaurants. Thank you for your help in arranging the tour according to our budget and upgrading the car for us. We wish we can revisit Iceland soon.“

“My family and I wanted to explore Iceland at our own pace and not be reliant on prepackaged guided tours. Isafold Travel was excellent in that they gave us the tools and assistance we needed to explore the beauty of Iceland, on our own and make lasting memories for us. Having the written guide was of tremendous help in making the trip a resounding success.“

“We have visited Iceland many times now and have on a number of occasions, engaged Isafold Travel to assist with our travel plans. This has ranged from vehicle rental and accommodation to complete tours. We have always found everyone at Isafold to be so friendly and courteous, always offering great advice and travel tips and on the rare occasion we’ve needed it, fast and effective help in sorting out problems. We would genuinely recommend using them!”
