We are Tindaborg

Hi there! We are Árni and Íris and we would love to show you the mountains and glaciers in Öræfi. We live in Svínafell in the south east of Iceland with Öræfajökull, the largest volcano and the highest mountain in Iceland, in our back yard.

We specialize in private trips with small groups, so they can be tailored to suit your needs. We do everything from short glacier hikes to technical mountaineering and the surroundings in Öræfi offer almost everything you could imagine. 

We love what we do and we would love to show you around! 


Why choose Tindaborg

 In Iceland we have some of the best areas to explore wild nature at it's very best. You feel the power in the weather and you see the power in the glaciers and the rivers. Getting out in beautiful surroundings, feeling the smell of fresh mountain air, flowers and birch trees can leave you with a feeling that you will never forget. 

We think that it's important that we all get a chance to build a connection to the nature so that we feel and learn how important it is for life on earth. 

Innumerable days out in the mountains that have left us with a feeling that we strive to experience again and share with others. We want to give Icelanders and foreign travelers in Iceland a chance to get to know the Icelandic nature better through hiking and climbing mountains and glaciers. 

You don't have to go far to find very special places in Iceland and it all becomes easier when you have a local guide to show you around! 

We have 15 years between us of guiding glaciers and mountains and we own a nice jeep that we use on our tours. Have a look through our tours for ideas or if you have any ideas of places to go or something special to do please let us know and we will do our best to make your dream adventure come true!
