Our Team in Iceland

Every member of our team—from our naturalists and photographers to our expedition leaders—is committed to ensuring you have an unforgettable experience. Many are veteran guides chosen for their extensive knowledge of subjects like geology and climate sciences, while special guests—from political luminaries to popular musicians—offer additional insights into modern Icelandic life. Exploring in small groups, you’ll hear different perspectives each day of your voyage, and because there are no assigned groups you can gravitate toward the guides who share your interests and inspire your curiosity.

Our knowledgeable and passionate expedition team is complemented by our dedicated hotel team who strives to ensure that your time on board is as comfortable and rewarding as your time on shore.
