CapeTours is a small family business owned and run by Þórunn and Bjarni from their home in the rual village Grenivík. Both are outdoor enthusiasts with a love for nature.
„We belive that nature should be taken care of and due to how dellicate the Icelandic fauna is we only have small private groups (5 – 6 people max.).“
– Bjarni Arason
Þórunn and Bjarni are keen on slow travel and engurage people to stay at one place longer, rather than visiting more places on the go.
“Slow travel is not so much a particular mode of transportation as it is a mindset. Rather than attempting to squeeze as many sights or cities as possible into each trip, the slow traveler takes the time to explore each destination thoroughly and to experience the local culture.”
– Sarah Schlichter
Bjarni is CapeTours guide and expert on the outdoor living and experience. His love for nature starts in the Danish scouts when he was 6 and he has been sailing canoes and building shelters ever since. Canoeing turned into seakayaking later on and Bjarni has been instructing in both sports for about 10 years. Bjarni does not stop at sea level as he hikes (mainly looking for sheep), skiies and snowboards aswell. Bjarni has a bachelor decree in tourism.
Þórunn is the definition of an Icelandic farm girl. Growing up on a Icelandic sheep farm has given her a good sence for Icelandic animals and fauna. Be it berries or flowers, birds or mice, she knows. She has been angling for trout since she could hold the rod and riding the Icelandic horse since she could sit. If you ask nicely she might even make you a traditional Icelandic lamb stew. Þórunn has a bachelor decree in biotechnology.
