Rúnar Karlsson

Rúnar is the founder of our company. The real deal outdoorsman and the multitool you strive to be. The best source of local knowledge who knows every crack, valley, and summit in the mountains and fjords around. Who can say they’ve ice climbed Dynjandi for the challenge and also used that same skill to rescue a missing dog from the icy tops of the surrounding mountains here in Ísafjörður.

Regína Sif Rúnarsdóttir

Personable and calming, Regína will ease your concerns that may arise. Consistently making life better for travellers and guides alike, you can’t put value on human kindness. Whether it’s a problem-solving email, or the plants that brighten up the office when you first step into our cozy space. She’s up for a chat, but the question is, are you? Oh yeah, and that problem you had…not so impossible huh?

Davíð Hjaltason

As local as you can get but will keep you guessing with his charming British accent. A valued member of the office and behind the scenes team, he will ensure that you can spend more time taking it easy. Hakuna Matata!

Stjáni (Kristján R Guðmundsson)

Captain of our beautiful vessel Sif. Believes that life is better on a boat so will keep us safe and sound while we motor the fjords and pass the most Northern lighthouse in Iceland. He never get’s tired of the sea, his free time he spends exploring the world on his sailboat. Loves a good prank, but don’t worry his target is always the guides.

Sigrún Auðardóttir

Sigrún is a local girl that grew up with cross country skis under her feet and kayaking the fjords. She is one of the strongest and most easy going spirit among our staff and fun to be around.

Joonas Kinni

Born and raised in Finland, Joonas found his way to Iceland for his master’s degree in coastal and marine management. He’s been with us for many seasons and was the driving force in making the sauna in Kviar Lodge as you can imagine. Joonas has found the perfect balance by spending the long summer days in Iceland and the winter in Saudi Arabia where he works as a research diver. As a true Finn, Joonas is an avid knitter, and you can find him on social media under @knitting_man
