Responsible tourism: Iceland vacation, September Highlands tour


Our aim is to ensure a maximum of quality on our trips, enabling each participant to experience a re-centering on his or her personal life. Our short adventures are for people with open, contemplative, active minds, who are willing to take time to discover.

When you travel alone in Iceland or with one of our small group trip we encourage you to follow this basic eco-friendly rules:

- Donít leave waste behind you, take all the rubbish with you until you can find a proper litter bin
- Recycle as much as possible during your trip
- Follow footpaths and donít walk on unmarked trails in order to protect the flora, donít pick native flora even rocks or stones you could find pretty!
- Drink from taps and try to avoid buying plastic bottles. Water in Iceland is really good, use a flask when you go walking and refill it each time, with fresh water.
- If camping donít contaminate, river and spring by using washing product which can contain detergent and phosphate. Try to use organic washing products without chemicals.

In our tours we eat locally, as much as possible organic with a vegetarian tendency except for the delicious grilled leg of lamb and the unmissable local fish. We are particularly interested in well-balanced and nutritious meals. If you have a special diet you need to let this now before the beginning of your trip.

We are ourselves based in Iceland and work all year round from our office, trying to use as little transportation as possible even though Icelandic road conditions mean that we have to use engine such as 4x4 to conduct our customers safely. Whenever possible we walk and encourage slow travel by focusing on a small region instead of driving long hours to do the whole country. A lot of our tours are even based at the same place in North Iceland with little kilometers to drive everyday. The aim is to feel, experience and explore places hard to find without possessing the keys instead of glancing over.

We support a local association called Fjoregg and meet with them regularly to help make changes with regards to better sustainable energy use, wastewater treatment and protection of lake Mżvatn birdlife. We also plant a tree for every 2 customers that book with us.


Our company is a family run company specialized in small group owned by Icelandic/French couple Harpa /Jean Marc who are based in Iceland. Together they have over 15 years experience traveling and guiding. She studied anthropology, Kundalini yoga and music and will tell you stories of the world of elves and trolls. She is also the president of the local association "Fjoregg" in order to protect the environment. You will have the chance to become an adherent and support this association. Jean Marc is a professor of Aikido and Qigong and is a Shiatsu therapist.

On our tours, we work with local suppliers. Most of the places are chosen for their quality and are locally owned. We pay local communities directly and donít work with large scale with international corporations. Itís also why we only travel in small groups (up to 12 people only).

We encourage people to buy local products and handicraft, respect customs and traditions, be polite in front of locals and even manage to speak a few Icelandic words even Icelandic people usually speak good English. Respect for local people, their cultures, traditions and environment are essential to our philosophy and we work hard to ensure our groups have a positive impact on the places and people visited. We hope that our clients will be treated as guests rather than as tourists whilst traveling with us.

Guided tours
With your driver and guide youíll experience Iceland more like a guest than a tourist. They will show you their favorite spots, and will tell you the stories and legends attached to every place. Tours often focus on contemplation, meditation, observation of wildlife, meeting of the local people and traditions...
