A Taste of Geothermal Living

Our in-destination Local Partner, Arndis, has worked with local members in the south of Iceland to create this uniquely Icelandic adventure. For Arndis, a slow adventure isn't merely a tour or trip - it's a feeling. A feeling of peace and contentment, a special connection with nature and with people local to her. Slow Adventure has been Arndis's little passion project for the past few years since she moved to the south coast of Iceland. For Smári, one of your guides on this adventure, being outdoors is when he feels most alive. it doesn't matter what he's doing, as long as he spends the majority of his time outdoors with other people. After years working as a lecturer in Outdoor Education, he decided that it was time to head into the mountains every day with guests.
