Goecco Eco Tours

Whether you go on one of our hikes, day-tours, or private tours we’ll show you the real Iceland: the serene, the thunderous, the quaint, and the surreal. Goecco is about experiencing Iceland off the beaten track on our down-to-earth tours, guided by real men and women.

As we are huge fans of the peaceful, beautiful Iceland we often follow the winding road to the places others don’t go. And when we do go the popular spots, we make an effort to be there during ‘quiet’ times. As we go along we throw in a bit of good music, local food and just enjoy real people talking to real people!

We are known for finding new places and inventing new tours. We don’t work with big corporations, agents or booking engines. We work with local people, finding new places to sleep, eat and experience Iceland.

We make an effort to work with likeminded people, who love and respect nature and other human beings. We don’t choose our guides from their guide school certificate but from their life experience and personality.

So if you want a big, fancy tour bus going from sterile photo opportunity to photo opportunity, we are not for you – but if you are looking for a road trip with good friends – come along with an open heart and a generous spirit!

Iceland Rovers

A Legacy of Innovation, Passion & Professionalism
Over the last 20 years we have used our expert knowledge, passion for nature and pioneering spirit to create innovative activities in Iceland for travelers.

The 6th of January in 1996, the last day of Christmas in Iceland, was a fateful day for what will later become Iceland Rovers. At Sveinatunga Farm a chat between Villa, Bassi, Einar Torfi and Ingibjörg sparked the idea for the company. Later that month, Iceland Rovers was born and the idea was to focus on providing Incentive tours in comfy, modified Land Rover Defenders (also called Super Jeeps in Iceland). We were the first company in the travel industry to use modified Defenders. Because the concept was so new, we had to bring in an expert mechanic, Snorri, and an electrician, Ingimundur, to make proper adjustments to the cars.

January proved to be a month of growth for the company because Laufey, Árni, Sigrún and Niels joined the team, along with Snorri and Ingimundur. Defenders are quite costly to buy in Iceland, so the team approached B&L car dealership with a clever idea. For a discount on Defenders, they offered to help promote the concept of using a modified Defender as a vehicle for taking travelers on tours in Iceland. With 6 new Defenders and extra parts, the team got to work on making the modifications. As summer inched closer, Iceland Rovers gained sponsorship from companies like B&L, Bræðurnir Ormsson, Aukaraf and others in exchange for advertising. In June of 1996, the first modified Land Rover Defender was ready. Iceland Rovers became a registered travel agency that fall and Ingibjörg was the first official employee. The headquarters shared a space with Icelandic Mountain Guides, Bátafólkið and Langjökull. Iceland Rovers ran promotional trips throughout the fall in the new Defenders.

Adventurous, fun and safe tours were our aim, and we were successful in incorporating playful team exercises and challenges inside and outside of the Defenders.

Throughout the years, our most common tours were incentive trips to Landmannalaugar, Þórsmörk, and the mountains around Reykjavík.

We opened up new avendures for travelers, like lava cave tours, hunting for the Northern Lights & lobster tours, sleeping in snow houses, abseiling, snow gliding with style, become a viking for a day and team building games.

After more than a decade of collaborating with Icelandic Mountain Guides on different projects and operating in similar areas, the companies merged in 2007. During the last 10 years, Iceland Rovers has evolved from a Land Rover Defender (Super Jeep) company to an expert in comfort travel, no matter the vehicle. Super Jeeps are still a part of our legacy and we offer those types of tours, but our wider selection allows for us to meet the needs of travelers who seek to venture beyond the beaten path. Our goal is to MAKE EVERY MOMENT AN EXPERIENCE that will lasts a lifetime.

Iceland Rovers is also the sister-company of Icelandic Mountain Guides, an Iceland tour company that specializes in hiking tours, glacier tours, backpacking and trekking tours, ice climbing & mountain climbing.

The Iceland Rovers team is a highly select group of specialists. We pride ourselves for not only providing a fun, adventurous and diverse Iceland tour experience but also a safe one. You are in good hands with Iceland Rovers.

Mountain Taxi

Why travel with Mountain Taxi?

Mountain Taxi is one of Iceland’s first adventure tour operators, founded by couple Kristján and Björk in the West of Iceland in 1995. Since they have along with choice staff created individual, small group and incentive trips and Superjeep travel for discerning travelers. Every Mountain Taxi customer is seen as a valuable asset, is treated accordingly, with fair pricing. Having among the highest percentage of repeat customers in Icelandic adventure and expedition travel means we must be doing something right.

We may not always be cheapest, but we try hard to be best.

Much of the interior of Iceland is inaccessible by anything other than specially outfitted jeeps. The terrain is rugged and difficult to access, and the best jeep guides temper their desire to tame the Highlands with a strict code of conduct based on a strong respect and need to protect the land.

Your Guide is our Pride

We don’t trust just anybody to take care of our customers the Mountain Taxi way. Mountain Taxi guides are chosen carefully based on experience and reputation. They have to be passionate about Iceland, able to deal with any situation, also in the middle of nowhere, love what they do, AND share our views on customer care. Navigating the rough Icelandic highlands and glaciers safely craves skill and years of active experience. All Mountain Taxi guides are highly experienced Superjeep drivers with strong respect for Iceland´s wild, unspoiled nature.
