Northern Explorer´s speciality is to organize and operate tour for small groups and individuals in Iceland and in Greenland. We are providing professional and personal service and our guides are very knowledgable and willing to meet the needs of our customers. The long experience of our staff means that we know all the highlights and places worth visiting so we can organize your holiday the way you want it. Our aim is that our guests enjoy and experience the magnificent nature and learn about the history as well as the culture of Iceland and  Greenland when visiting our big neighbour in the west.

Northern Explorer is a fully licensed tour operator and a travel agency and although we are focusing on small groups and individuals then we are also working as a Destination Management Company assisting tour companies in planing and operating tours for individuals and groups in Iceland and Greenland. Northern Explorer is emphasising on sustainability and respect for the fragile and sensitive nature in Iceland and Greenland. Our motto is:
