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.

Mountain Taxi

Why travel with Mountain Taxi?

Mountain Taxi is one of Iceland’s first adventure tour operators, founded by couple Kristján and Björk in the West of Iceland in 1995. Since they have along with choice staff created individual, small group and incentive trips and Superjeep travel for discerning travelers. Every Mountain Taxi customer is seen as a valuable asset, is treated accordingly, with fair pricing. Having among the highest percentage of repeat customers in Icelandic adventure and expedition travel means we must be doing something right.

We may not always be cheapest, but we try hard to be best.

Much of the interior of Iceland is inaccessible by anything other than specially outfitted jeeps. The terrain is rugged and difficult to access, and the best jeep guides temper their desire to tame the Highlands with a strict code of conduct based on a strong respect and need to protect the land.

Your Guide is our Pride

We don’t trust just anybody to take care of our customers the Mountain Taxi way. Mountain Taxi guides are chosen carefully based on experience and reputation. They have to be passionate about Iceland, able to deal with any situation, also in the middle of nowhere, love what they do, AND share our views on customer care. Navigating the rough Icelandic highlands and glaciers safely craves skill and years of active experience. All Mountain Taxi guides are highly experienced Superjeep drivers with strong respect for Iceland´s wild, unspoiled nature.

Borea

Borea is a fully licensed adventure guiding company based in Ísafjörður in the heart of the Westfjords of Iceland.

The founders of Borea have always recognized the great potential of adventure tourism surrounding their home, yet little was being done to encourage it. They wanted to let people enjoy their home environment in the same way they had done since they were young.

Borea was created in 2006 and focuses on both short day trips for everyone and exclusive expeditions to remote corners in the Arctic.

The company is operated by sailors, climbers, skiers, and sea kayakers that find their inspiration in the unique wilderness that surrounds them.

All our guides are local Icelanders and good friends that have designed each trip to operate in full harmony with nature.

Borea Adventures is run by Rúnar Karlsson and Nanný Arna Guðmundsdóttir. They are both born in Ísafjörður and living there. They have years of experience in all sorts of outdoor activities in Iceland and know the Westfjords like the back of their hand. The company only hires guides with thorough knowledge in backcountry skiing, sea kayaking, hiking and that have great respect for the natural environment.
