Lead guide and founder
Ásgeir’s upbringing in Iceland, specifically in the picturesque
Westfjörds region, instilled in him a deep appreciation for the great
outdoors. Skiing and hiking were among his cherished pastimes during his
formative years. His parents played a pivotal role in fostering his
wanderlust by taking him on exploratory journeys across Iceland and
eventually mainland Europe, igniting his passion for travel,
photography, and history.
By seamlessly blending these passions, Ásgeir established Strandsel
Iceland Tours in 2012. His primary focus revolves around crafting
personalized adventures that engage all the senses of his guests.
Whether it involves savoring freshly caught local Halibut, foraging for
wild berries in remote and seldom-visited valleys, or immersing oneself
in untouched natural landscapes, Ásgeir’s mission is to curate
innovative itineraries that spark excitement in his fellow travelers,
providing them with sensory-driven experiences and forging indelible
memories of their journeys.
