Nature Explorer offers tours in Iceland in Super Jeeps or Super-Trucks, which are modified 4x4s, which enable us to safely drive on glaciers and across unbridged rivers and reach otherwise inaccessible terrains, so that you can explore more of Iceland. We are a small, family run Icelandic tour operator, with a team of expert driverguides with background in Mt. Search & Rescue, 4x4 instructors and professional guides. We have a passion for Iceland and take pride sharing it in a personalized service on a variety of day and multi day tours. On our day tours out of Reykjavik we have the smallest group size in the industry, only 5 passengers per Super Jeep, but we can also cater to larger groups, and we offer private tours. We hope we can share your Iceland adventure.

What a wonderful introduction to Iceland. Corresponded with Haukur to set everything up and he was very organised, friendly and accommodating, then a complete lifesaver when we missed our connecting flights in Gatwick and ended up arriving much later than planned! I was travelling with my daughter on a trip of a lifetime, and I knew we were in for... More

Mink Travel. Authentic Iceland Upon the recommendation of our hotel we decided to have a private tour( for 2 persons) with Mink Travel. We wanted to have an authentic Icelandic experience while touring in places far from the tourist crowd. Our guide/driver suggested a tour of the area of Hvalfjorour and Akranes instead of doing the Golden Circle tour. We... More

I cannot stress how much we enjoyed our time with Nature Explorers while we were in Reykjavik. We set up two tours with the company; one to the Blue Lagoon and one to tour the Golden Circle with an added glacier tour. Both guides were informative and fun, and both locations are not to be missed! the Golden Circle was... More

We had 2 days in the Super Jeep and our driver Olafur basically adapted 100% of the trip to our needs. It was fun to see other tours stopping and going back while on the Super Jeep we would just keep going through rivers, snow... You really get to where only a few can get. I highly recommend it if...

We used nature explorer to help put together a trip of a lifetime for 3 couples for three days. Hawk and Anna and the amazing tour guides (Martin and inke) were outstanding. Every single thing was perfect and we highly recommend this company. They are so personal and helpful! Thank you guys for everything!!

Thank you so much for our tour today - we thoroughly enjoyed it and are delighted with the experience we received. Of course the sights were very impressive, but the historical, geographical and cultural knowledge of our driver guide Tryggvi (and his great story-telling ability!) was unparalleled and really made the difference. We thoroughly enjoyed his company and would highly... More

My third trip to Iceland and my third tour with Nature Explorer. Everything was perfect! Thanks to Ingi our guide and driver for making it more special. His knowledge of the land and its details deserve special mention. The weather was on our side for the two separate trips we took on this occassion and we saw the northern lights... More

We were picked up from our hotel by Ingi at 9am in his jeep and we were back at about 5.45 We did a full Golden Circle tour including Thingvellir national park, the hot springs at Geysir and .Gullfoss waterfall. All of these were amazing. However the highlight of the trip was driving over the... More

My wife and I found this to be an awesome way to see Iceland. The tours can get you off the beaten path if you like, and guided by informative and very pro drivers. We learned a bit of history along the way too! Totally recommend these trips. Great photo opportunities everywhere as well!
