Who is Vik Expeditions?

Searching for a trusted fun local guide in Iceland can be tough to fine among all of the big box tour operators.  Some of those may even lead you to believe they offer “personalized” service and tours but when you show up it’s just another random guide and cookie cutter tour.  < Insert sad face >  But don’t fret, allow Vik Expeditions to come to the rescue!

Who is Vik Expeditions?

Vik Expeditions is the passion project of Davíð Geir Jonasson, turned business.  Best way businesses are born, eh?  Need to niche!  It was his belief that Iceland lacked a local adventure company which focuses on crafting UNIQUE experience driven tours.  Not offering cookie cutter “open tours” which fall short in time and flexibility. 

Rather, it’s the mission to provide a list of ideas / options and he further creates your own unique EXPERIENCE within! After all, you’ve come all this way to Iceland to do something super memorable and DIFFERENT than the rest of your friends and family may have done. Why not book an adventurous day with a local to the area who will offer a very different kind of adventurous day for you!

Davíð’s love for mountaineering and sharing moments with people runs deep…  To say you’re in good hands would be an understatement!  To illustrate, he has been a part of the Icelandic SAR team (search and rescue) for 14+ years.  During those years he participated in countless training’s, specific educational courses, and been a part of some of the most challenging rescue missions in Iceland’s history.  Feel free to read more on our about page to understand  further why Vik Expeditions is so different!
