Ethic

We organize trips, guided or self-guided, for families, groups of friends, individuals. We have departures all year round for different durations of time, Iceland is to be discovered in every season. The trips are guided year French, English, German, Spanish and Icelandic.

In summer, we offer treks with or without porting across a region or trekking star.

We can also offer trip focus on horseback riding, cross-country skiing, kayaking, photography, sailing … activity environmentally friendly. We like to take the time (“slow travel”) feel, experience, explore hard to find places without possessing the keys.

We have a lot of ideas and flexibility, but we want to preserve the essence and spirit of our company, we are member to the VVE charter (Association of travelers and tour eco-responsible):
