Guðrún Helga

Hafnarfjörður, Iceland

I am a certified tour guide, licensed tour operator by the Icelandic Tourist Board and freelancing journalist offering all kinds of tours inside and outside of Reykjavik, Iceland, both day tours and multiple day tours.

I offer private custom tours, both day tours from Reykjavik and tours all around Iceland. I always try to do something special and different with my guests, something more and different than the tourist buses.

I love to take you to unique places according to your ideas and requests. If you haven't decided what you want to do in Iceland then it's easy for me to send you some suggestions.

My main vehicle is a Ford Econoline van E350 4x4 with a luggage trailer when and if needed. The Ford has good space for up to nine persons, five in comfortable captain seats and space for four on the back bench. The vehicle has been modified for Icelandic conditions and has 35" tires.

My Ford is a big vehicle that opens up the wilderness to us. When traveling we can cross glacial rivers and drive some of the dusty backroads, even going places where others don't go. I love to do something different and special with you.

I can easily accommodate smaller and bigger groups. PM for more information.

Please remember that you are always traveling at your own risk.

A Recent Review of this guide

Best tour we had in all of Iceland. Walked on a glacier, walked on the beach, great little lunch stop away from the large tourist sites, and of course the wonderful waterfalls. Would definitely recommend this tour with this great guide. Gudrun Helga is a wonderful guide.
