Go West

Join sustainable Eco-Adventure hikes on glacier, mountain, coast and lava.

Based in Arnarstapi, we offer trips throughout Snæfellsnes, Breiðafjörður and Iceland. Our most popular adventure being an incredible glacier hike from the base of Mt. Snæfell to the icy summit of the Snæfellsjökull glacier. With a team of mountain specialists and research biologists, together with guiding local tours for over 20 year, we can help you truly connect with the Icelandic environment and its nature.

We founded our company specifically to offer eco-friendly experiences that minimize impact on the environment and maximize the guest's experience of Icelandic nature and culture. We are proud that our ongoing environmental efforts have now been recognized and we have been awarded the GOLD award from Vakinn, the official quality and environmental certification for Icelandic tourism.
