Iceland is a rugged land. We at Around Iceland know that for sure. For centuries Icelanders walked or rode through rocky landscape, across glacial rivers, glaciers to meet family and friends. In such an environment hospitality was not only a noble gesture it was a necessity, an important part of safe traveling.

At AROUND ICELAND we offer our guests a safe and happy traveling experience. We love our island and we want to share our knowledge, experience and inspiration with our guests.

The DNA of AROUND ICELAND is hospitality. Tourists have walked in from the street and the staff of AROUND ICELAND has created a unique experience for them.

We focus on safety and to care about our guests. We use our experience to create unique tours to make our guests’ travels in Iceland memorable.

Hospitality is in our DNA

Yaelli came to Iceland on the spur of the moment in the summer of 2013.
It was supposed to be just a spontaneous summer vacation, but since then she keeps extending and extending her stay here. She is addicted to the Icelandic nature, been to almost any place on this island and still feels like she has so much more to see.
Yaelli loves to: Sleep, sit in a hot spring with a cold beer in her hand, try any possible restaurant or bar in Reykjavik.
Travelling around Iceland is always on her agenda. You can read about it in her blog, in Hebrew and English.
