Your Day Tours

We move people

Your Day Tours is a family owned company established in april 2015. Three brothers run the business with different background from finance, tourism and media. Our main goal is simply to move people. Not only between places – but also with the magnificent history and nature of Iceland.

 

Your Day Tours team

We are so lucky to have the best of the best in our team. As we are only doing these tours on mini busses we have driverguides in all our tours. We always put safety in first place but then we also try to be fun, kind, informative and helpful.

We play a lot of Icelandic music and tell you stories and jokes about Iceland and Icelanders. All the members of our team are getting great reviews on Tripadvisor, Facebook and all the sites that sell our tours.

 

Our vehicles

We operate all tours on a new Mercedes Benz Sprinter 2016 or 2015 model with free WiFi on board.

We also give you a little taste of icelandic snack.

We are only doing small groups so there will never be more than 19 passenger on the bus.

About Icelandic Horses

For more than a thousand years, from the settlement of t

he country in the late 9th century to the early 20th century, the small but amazingly strong Icelandic horse has played a vital role in Icelandic history. Dubbed “The most useful servant”, many Icelanders credit the horse for the survival of the Icelandic people. The settlers brought with them horses from Norway and the British Isles, strong and muscular they served their masters in war and peace.

In recorded Icelandic history, which spans over 900 years, no horses have been imported to Iceland. In the 11th century import was made illegal, so the present day horse is very similar to what they were 900 years ago. This isolation has preserved certain traits lost to other European horses. Among these are the five gaits the horse is famous for.

In Iceland these gaits are used depending on terrain and preference of the rider. While most horses have three gaits: walk, trot and gallop, the Icelandic horse has two extra gates. Icelanders call them tolt and skeid (pace), with the tolt gate being better known throughout the world. The tolt is a gait in a quartered beat with equal intervals and is a gait that, with unaltered footfall can escalate its swiftness from a mere step to great speed. You can hear the tolt distinctly as a constant four-beat staccato and if you watch a horse in tolt you can see that the horse carries the rider smoothly in an even four-beated rythim, perfectly still in his saddle, without the tossing movement of the trot.

East West

We firmly believe that in order to experience and enjoy all Iceland has to offer, one must let go of time and give into nature. Therefore our aim is to travel in adequate speed, make frequent stops for best photo opportunities possible and enjoy our journey together. Our trips are operated in Super Jeeps and Sprinter but for more information, tailor made trips and other vehicle requests, please contact us.

Slow drive
Iceland is a beautiful country with various scenes of nature. It is very photogenic and each scenery takes time to inhale and grasp. Therefore it is our mission to cover our journey in a manner that is relaxing, enjoyable and memorable.

Locations usually bear a lot of stories, whether they are of Vikings, Elves, Trolls or modern Icelandic people. These stories are both full of knowledge and good humor. Lets take in all the landscape, stories and atmosphere in good time.

 

Great rides
In order to ensure both safety and comfort we operate in vehicles designed for Icelandic conditions. We offer both minibuses and enhanced Super Jeeps to be able to meet rapid weather conditions. There is an Icelandic saying: „If you don´t like the weather, then just wait 5 minutes.“

It is quite an experience to ride in a Super Jeep. Huge tires (42″) can take you over big rivers and up to glaciers to a fantastic view and the unique cold that comes from the massive ice. Our Sprinter is a very comfortable ride and suits perfectly for observing all the miscellaneous scenes of nature on the route.

Secret spots
Geysir, Gullfoss, Þingvellir, Jökulsárlón, the Blue Lagoon. These are all fantastic phenomenons. But there are countless other precious gems spread around the country. Why limit your visit to what everybody else is doing?

Come see waterfalls, geysers, caves, beaches and lava fields covered with moss just as astonishing and hear stories in the meantime.

 

 

After all, we are on holiday.

Iceland Rovers

A Legacy of Innovation, Passion & Professionalism
Over the last 20 years we have used our expert knowledge, passion for nature and pioneering spirit to create innovative activities in Iceland for travelers.

The 6th of January in 1996, the last day of Christmas in Iceland, was a fateful day for what will later become Iceland Rovers. At Sveinatunga Farm a chat between Villa, Bassi, Einar Torfi and Ingibjörg sparked the idea for the company. Later that month, Iceland Rovers was born and the idea was to focus on providing Incentive tours in comfy, modified Land Rover Defenders (also called Super Jeeps in Iceland). We were the first company in the travel industry to use modified Defenders. Because the concept was so new, we had to bring in an expert mechanic, Snorri, and an electrician, Ingimundur, to make proper adjustments to the cars.

January proved to be a month of growth for the company because Laufey, Árni, Sigrún and Niels joined the team, along with Snorri and Ingimundur. Defenders are quite costly to buy in Iceland, so the team approached B&L car dealership with a clever idea. For a discount on Defenders, they offered to help promote the concept of using a modified Defender as a vehicle for taking travelers on tours in Iceland. With 6 new Defenders and extra parts, the team got to work on making the modifications. As summer inched closer, Iceland Rovers gained sponsorship from companies like B&L, Bræðurnir Ormsson, Aukaraf and others in exchange for advertising. In June of 1996, the first modified Land Rover Defender was ready. Iceland Rovers became a registered travel agency that fall and Ingibjörg was the first official employee. The headquarters shared a space with Icelandic Mountain Guides, Bátafólkið and Langjökull. Iceland Rovers ran promotional trips throughout the fall in the new Defenders.

Adventurous, fun and safe tours were our aim, and we were successful in incorporating playful team exercises and challenges inside and outside of the Defenders.

Throughout the years, our most common tours were incentive trips to Landmannalaugar, Þórsmörk, and the mountains around Reykjavík.

We opened up new avendures for travelers, like lava cave tours, hunting for the Northern Lights & lobster tours, sleeping in snow houses, abseiling, snow gliding with style, become a viking for a day and team building games.

After more than a decade of collaborating with Icelandic Mountain Guides on different projects and operating in similar areas, the companies merged in 2007. During the last 10 years, Iceland Rovers has evolved from a Land Rover Defender (Super Jeep) company to an expert in comfort travel, no matter the vehicle. Super Jeeps are still a part of our legacy and we offer those types of tours, but our wider selection allows for us to meet the needs of travelers who seek to venture beyond the beaten path. Our goal is to MAKE EVERY MOMENT AN EXPERIENCE that will lasts a lifetime.

Iceland Rovers is also the sister-company of Icelandic Mountain Guides, an Iceland tour company that specializes in hiking tours, glacier tours, backpacking and trekking tours, ice climbing & mountain climbing.

The Iceland Rovers team is a highly select group of specialists. We pride ourselves for not only providing a fun, adventurous and diverse Iceland tour experience but also a safe one. You are in good hands with Iceland Rovers.
