Guide Overview

All Iceland Guide guides are certified tourist guides. They have graduated from one of the three programs that offer tour guide education: The Iceland Tourist Guide School, The Icelandic School of Travel and Tourism or The Tourist Guides Program with in the Continuing Education Department at the University of Iceland. All provide comprehensive training for guides.

Although our guides graduated specialising in certain languages as stated in their profiles, many are willing and capable of guiding in other languages. Just ask! All Iceland Guide guides speak Icelandic and most are able to guide in Icelandic as well.

The Iceland Guide guides come from all walks of life, are of different ages, have diverse backgrounds, education, professions, experience, interests and nationalities. What they all have in common is their love for Iceland, their knowledge, passion and willingness to share it with visitors from all over the world.

The Iceland Guide guides are experts in Icelandic history, language, literature, geology, art and culture - just to name a few things - they enjoy the company of people and life in general. They have experience in leading visitors around this unique country, full of lava fields, glaciers, hot springs, desert sands, volcanoes, black beaches, fishing villages, hidden people, ancient stories, folk tales and then some!

All Iceland Guides are presented here as individuals and should be contacted directly through the contact details provided in their profiles. Please mention this site when contacting the guide of your choice.

Iceland Guide tour guides can be searched by the following catagories:


Experience ranking/year of graduation

Experience ranking is based on two things: First is formal education and continuing education, but points are given for both. Second is for time of guiding, that is 1 point is given for each 18 days of guiding of 8 hours each. The experience ranking information are from the Iceland Tourist Guide Association website. The information is not accurate as in many cases experience points do not include points for education (15 points for the two recognized Tourist Guide Schools and 5 points for continuing education). The points give below do for that reason not always reflect the true number but rather points that have at least been gained. (Within brakets: First graduation year, if available; then experience points)
