Tinna Adventure

We at Tinna Adventure are Icelandic nature and travel enthusiasts. Whether by car, on a bike or on foot, we want to share Iceland's unique nature and tranquility with you.

We have extensive experience in mountaineering. Our background also includes work with the internationally recognized Icelandic Search and Rescue Association.

We travel in small groups, where each Super jeep has the maximum capacity of 4 to 6 passengers. This is done with the objective of giving you a close and personal encounter with the magnificent Icelandic nature. Our emphasis is on slow travel and a personal connection with nature. Most of all, an experience where each passenger can take the time they wish, long or short exploring Icelandic nature on their own terms.

We hold great respect for the environment and make it our goal to leave no trace where we travel. This is so that coming generations may enjoy the same beautiful nature as we do today.

We also work closely with the local community and businesses. That is in the effort to create a sustainable working environment for the entire community.
