Fjallafari Highlander

Since 1994

Since 1994 we have offered many varied tours; convoy tours, jeeptours, 4×4, scheduled tours, tailormade tours, hunting, winter, geographic, history and family tours all over Iceland, all corners, from the highlands to the sea shores. Daytours to three week tours.
Fjallafari Highlander views itself as a specialist safari tour operator and as such has devoted itself to highly individualistic, historical and culture tourism. Wherever possible the endeavour is to guide you away from mass tourist destinations and show you some of classic Iceland, meet the Icelanders and travel off the beaten track.

Tailormade tours, i.e. tours in which the interested parties also make a large personal contribution starting at the planning stage, allows a great deal of freedom in the structuring of the tour, and this represent a strong pillar of our company philosophy. We say the tours represented in catalogues and websites should be treated more as a source of ideas and as stimuli but they can, of course, also be booked with us. You can obtain additional information by contacting us once you have decided to visit Iceland.

  • Thank you Oli for a really fantastic holiday. It was far better than we expected. You worked so hard to get it right. It was really good to me the lovely Johanna. (hope the spelling is OK).

    We got back and found that a very special friend had died. We went to the funeral yesterday. That is why I have not replied earlier.

    See you in England soon I hope. Celia sends her love.

  • “Unique guide in an incredible country”

    I took several film students to Iceland for almost two weeks. Oli helped plan the trip, including all of the details around food, logistics, lodging– he took care of everything and was extremely generous with his time, both before and during the trip. Needless to say, we had an incredible time. Everyone should visit Iceland at least once in their lifetime. Oli is a unique guide, and a unique person. His primary goal is in squeezing the zest and authenticity out of life, out of every interaction, including his tours, and making sure that his guests get the same. He’s the real deal, and I would say we learned as much about Icelandic culture through Oli himself as we did through being there. I would add that he’s best suited as a guide to folks who are adventurous and up for anything, spontaneous. He does much of his planning during a trip day by day, dependent on the group’s mood or the weather. Our trip was most enjoyable when we were able to let go and be present. If you’re the type of person that likes to know exactly what you’re doing moment by moment, he may not be for you. At times, with twelve film students looking to me for direction, this could be frustrating, and Oli wasn’t extremely responsive to my queries for more planning and more guidance at the beginning of each day, so that the students knew what to expect, including where we’d be going and what we’d be doing. All of that said, Oli is an authentic Icelander and he will make sure you see not the tourist attractions alone, but the real Iceland. He’s safe, competent, hard-working, and knowledgeable, and all of us feel lucky to have had the opportunity to travel with him.

  • Hi Oli!!!

    I wanted to respond and say thank you so much for such a wonderful trip. My whole family knows who you are now because of how well you treated us all. I feel like you are the uncle I never had. Knowing you is such a privilege and learning from you is something I will never forget. The food we all made, the experiences we shared at the waterfalls and driving through the water to the Puffins will be a memory I cherish forever. I loved Iceland. I loved the food, the people, the animals and just how careful you are with your country’s natural beauty. I can say that here in America, we don’t take as good of care of our landscapes as Iceland does. I’ve always wished we cared more for our wildlife and nature. I hope you know just how much I respect you and your love for animals. I have always wanted to live on a farm and travel the world studying animals because of how amazing they are…it seems like you have a similar passion for them. Thank you for making sure I didn’t eat cream and for taking care of my needs (my bum knee) during the trip. I can’t thank you enough. I also want to tell you that I haven’t felt connected to someone as I was with you. You care so much for everyone around you and you have a very unique perspective of the world. I enjoyed meeting someone so different and so lovely.

    I hope I will get to see you again and I hope you always share your views of life with others. You are such an important asset to this world because of your love for it.

    Thank you for the best experience of my life.

    Love,

Review sent by Dawn, USA, travelled with me 2014

My tour with Oli/Highlander Adventures (July 28 through August 3, 2014) was different from any other ‘tour’ I’ve had in my travels. On the most basic level, Oli handled all arrangements for lodging and transportation (he drove us personally)…where he went above and beyond is how he created one-of-a-kind experiences that could never be arranged […]
