About Hit Iceland

Our goal is to organize a tour of outdoor experience in a country loaded with natural wonders and many places that few people visit.

Hit Iceland is a family-owned company founded by Einar Páll Svavarsson and his wife, Guðrún Einarsdóttir. Hit Iceland plans day and private tours for small groups of eight people or less. Our operation is based in Reykjavík and does regular day tours to Landmannalaugar in the Highland in summer and Golden Circle in the winter. We plan private tours to places all over Iceland and have specialized in organizing tours for individuals, families, and family members traveling together and groups of friends and photographic tours. Short tours for three to four days and extended tours up to fourteen days. We assist our customers in putting together a fascinating itinerary and suggest interesting places based on their preferences. We mainly concentrate on visiting natural wonders and remote areas of interest. We are also competent hikers since outdoor activity has always been part of our lifestyle, and short, moderate hiking is often part of our tour suggestions. Our goal is to organize a tour of outdoor experience in a country loaded with natural wonders and many places that few people visit. We hope to hear from you if you and some of your family members or friends are looking for a tour operator in Iceland to help you plan a visit and enjoy the convenience of a private tour with a highly experienced local guide.
