Reykjavík Outventure was founded in 2018 by Jóhann. After having been at sea as a captain or first mate for the last 17 years it was time for something new. After countless talks and brainstorming with colorful characters of the trawler about the trips of their dreams an idea was born:
Reykjavik Outventure is a small family owned operator with huge heart which creates high quality experiences for tourists. We specialise in small group tours where the guests get to taste things and visit places they would usually not do except with a local guide.
Reykjavik Outventure’s team consists of experienced local guides who are here to make your days the best possible.
A company that specialises in offering opportunities and unique personal experiences to those who like to have fun in an informative way. Reykjavík Outventure is exactly that!
We want to stand out from everyone else. This team in Reykjavik Outventure has a great sense of humor and loves to share it with travellers.
Reykjavik Outventure team wants to make your experience of Iceland absolutely unforgettable.
If you like to experience Iceland in a small group with an awesome local guide and tasting authentic Icelandic food and drinks, then you are at the right place.
We sure hope to see you 🙂
Reykjavik Outventures Team
Owner and a true viking
Jóhann or Jói is a funny guy who speaks a lot (in a good way) and loves telling stories. He’s very open although he thinks of himself as being shy.
His hair has started to fall out but he doesn´t mind so it´s alright to stare.
A good guy who enjoys swimming in the – 2°C ocean in all weather conditions and plays football (real football: soccer).
He eats red meat for every meal, even breakfast, and is always up for an adventure!
The person behind the emails
Margrét is the great woman of Kiddi. Kiddi would not be able to grow any silver if it would not be for her. She makes these hairs grow. She also fits perfectly into this ADHD team we have. Full of energy, adventure, stories and wisdom.
This is the woman that answers the emails, puts together the pick up list and sometimes answers the phone. She is extremely organized person and keeps everything under control at the office.
Sometimes she goes to the field to guide and you will be lucky to have her there with you.
Have you seen the movie Pinocchio?
Gosi is him in real life! When he lies, his nose gets HUGE! So if you go on a tour with him, his nose is usally really big. It all depends a little bit on how big the lie is.
Pinocchio is a fisherman during the night but a super guide during the day.
He knows everything about everything…Well, at least he thinks so..
He is a good friend and a reliable one.
He can do a bit of everything and you can say he is a multitasker.
He is a handsome young guide.
Kiddi silver fox
chairman and co-owner
You have heard the saying “Been there, done that and bought the T-shirt”.
Kiddi has actually done that. There is almost nothing he has not done.
He is trying to be a silver fox, but he can only grow a few gray hairs in his beard. But he wants people to call him the fox.
Kiddi the silver fox likes to jog 20 km every day in all weathers. He is a real Viking. If you will ever take a city walk, Glymur hike or Mt.Esja hike with us, you will meet this beautiful person.
He is an awesome friend and you can always count on him.
The head guide
Have you heard of the story of Ragnarok? That story is made about Ragnar in Outventures team. It means ,,Ragnar is OK”. Ragnar ok. You get it?
Ragnar is the sweatest person you will meet. He makes everyones days happy and will not leave you unless you are satisfied with your day. So no worries, you will not stay long after a tour with him!
Some say that he is the best guide in the world. That may well be 🙂
We are extremely lucky and grateful for him.
Our northern lights guide
Gunnar is not only a great fox, he is also a great guide. This man has guided all the most important people that have visited Iceland and even the most famous Bollywood star. When you meet him at first, he may look like Rambo, but when you get to know him more, he starts to look more and more like Donnie Brasco.
This is one of the most experienced guide in the guide fleet in Iceland and he has only made Reykjavik Outventure stronger. He takes great pictures with his awesome camera in the Northern Lights tour.
If you will join a tour with him, make sure to put your makeup on, because you want to be on one of his photos.
Baltasar is the son of Johann. He is the CEO of Reykjavik Outventure and all ideas and decisions have to go through him. If he smiles, that means yes. If he starts to cry, that also means yes. Luckily, he always smiles.
At Reykjavik Outventure office, he is called the King. That´s because he always wants to let us hold him.
You could get lucky while in Iceland and meet ,,The King”.
It is hard to not smile when around this old toothless guy 🙂
Eidur son of Kiddi
Do you know the famous Icelandic football player, Eidur Gudjohnsen? He played with Barcelona, Chelsea and other big clubs.
Well, this is not him. They are not even related a little bit.
But this is the son of the famous athlete Kiddi silver fox. He looks exactly like his father, but he has much better manners.
He was the youngest marathon runner to run the famous Laugavegur marathon. He even was faster than his father.
This boy has a heart of gold and you will be lucky to go on a hike with him or a city walk.
