Geo Travel is a small family run adventure tour operator in the Mývatn area in the north of Iceland.

The company follows an ecological and sustainable policy. Our tours have minimal impact on the environment and comunity; therefore those who come after us will also see the untouched wilderness. The goal of our tours is to give our guests a unique experience and at the same time to have a positive impact on the local community and also to support nature conservation work in the area.

Geo Travel is a Carbon offset company. We support local farmers (Baldursheimur) to restore eroded land. Our program is sanctioned by Soil Conservation Agency of Iceland.

Safety is the first priority of our company. To fulfill our safety standards our guides must be local people and very experienced jeep drivers and mountaineers. Most of our guides are active members of the local search and rescue team and certified in wilderness first aid. WFR.
