Overview

Day tours in a Comfortable Super Jeep with a Private Local Guide. My name is Kristinn Ingi Petursson (KIP) and I am a Certified Tour Guide, and a Driver Guide. I was born and raised on a farm near Lake Myvatn in Iceland. I'm privileged to be able to spend my time outside in Icelandic nature with interesting people all days. I speak English and Icelandic and sometimes I also communicate with the elves and trolls of Iceland :-) I'm also a Certified Tour Operator with business license for transportation of people. I operate my daytours from Laugar and Lake Myvatn in North Iceland. I both do day tours and longer tours in Iceland and in the center highland. Expert in North Iceland highland, Askja and Myvatn area. Meeting points most often in Laugar or in the Lake Myvatn area.

We spent a wonderful day with Kristinn. During the long way to Askja, time goes by so quickly while he explains the nature and the traditions of Iceland. We recommend his Askja day tour for the great landscapes and Kristinn's animation.

KIP serves as my eyes and ears during my sojourns in Iceland. He is an expert in Askja and the Ódáðahraun area, and indeed the entire Mývatn area is his playground. A finer professional would be hard to find. If you want a private guide...More
