About Secret Iceland
Holasport is a small family run tourist company that has operated since 2010 and is located in a small village south of Iceland, Kirkjubæjarklaustur. In 2016 we changed our name to Secret Iceland. We feel that our new name, Secret Iceland describes better what we focus on in our tours. We focus on individuals and small groups with a maximum of 12 passengers in each Super Jeep. We will take you out of the beaten track and see hidden places that are still undisturbed and untouched. Join the full day tour to Lakagigar craters in Vatnajokull National Park. The super jeep tour is for those who want to get the most out of the day. Our super jeeps are specially modified in Iceland to be able to deal with the tough surroundings in the highlands and on glaciers. Owners of Secret Iceland are the brothers Gudmann and Trausti. We, the owners, grew up in this area. We have a great interest in tourism and Icelandic nature. We have travelled around all Iceland for more than 25 years by jeep, snowmobile and on quad bikes/ ATV's in wintertime as well as in summer. All our tours include an English speaking local guide that is also a certified Katla Geopark guide. Secret Iceland is open year round. Tours are on daily schedule from May to the end of September from small town in south of Iceland, Kirkjubæjarklaustur. In winter we offer tours from Reykjavík. We offer custom-made tours for various interest-groups in winter by requests.

Home to towering cliffs, sheer valleys, and cascading waterfalls, southern Iceland boasts some of the country’s most beautiful natural scenery—but the remoteness makes access a challenge. On this tour, explore the wilderness by powerful super-Jeep and reach top attractions including the Fagrifoss waterfall and Fjaðrárgjlúfur Canyon with ease. With your guide to lead the way and round-trip travel from selected Kirkjubaejarklaustur hotels, enjoy panoramic views over the rugged Icelandic countryside.

The Laki Craters are famous for their beauty, but getting there is famously difficult. A guided Jeep tour makes it possible to see the craters safely, with all transportation provided by specialty Jeeps engineered for Iceland’s rugged environment. After a hike through the glaciers, continue on a second hike to the  Tjarnargígur pond crater, explore hidden waterfalls, and visit the beautiful Fjadrargljufur Canyon before returning to your Kirkjubæjarklaustur hotel.
