The People of Arctic Adventures on Instagram
The Arctic Adventures team is a group of outdoorsy people with a constant passion for adventures.
No matter where you look inside the company you will find adventurers. Many of our team members are in the Search and Rescue team in Iceland where they use their passion to do good.
It might not come as much of a surprise that our guides are all about the outdoors and adventures but within the office walls, you’ll find equal nature lovers. Our CEO Jón, for example, spends his free time skiing in the north, Ragnheiður in Finance is a vivid golfer, our social media manager goes sea swimming throughout winter and Billi in operations used to be a yoga instructor.
Many of our team members like to share their adventures through Instagram. I would like to introduce you to a few, Bon Appetit!

Snorkeling at Silfra fissure is an activity like no other. It's the only place in the world where you can snorkel or dive in between tectonic plates. Instagram is filled with great captures from this place, we gathered a few.
I am Icelandic so this might seem like a weird thing to write about but the more I travel the more I realize that Icelanders, living on an island far in the North, have slowly developed a culture that is quite different to anywhere else. Here is a list of how to make Icelanders like you.
