WE MAY NOT ALWAYS BE CHEAPEST, BUT WE TRY HARD TO BE BEST
Your Adventure Travel Partner in Iceland
Why travel to Iceland?
Over 103.000 sq.km. Only 333.000 people.
There´s space for you.
Five absolutely random reasons to be in Iceland:
- Be safe: Babies are left outside shops
- Be wild: Reykjavík nightlife is nightlife; starts midnight, only daylight can stop it
- Be quiet: Christmas Day is for reading the books everybody got for Yule
- Be detonated: Midnight, New Year’s Eve: A not quite sober public blows up 300+ tons of fireworks
- Be healed: For your skin, for your soul, or to just meet locals in a tub, there’s hundreds of geothermal pools
Nature, Raw Nature
As mankind progresses forward, less and less is left of nature as formed – and being formed – by Earth’s basic elements. Nowhere but in Iceland are the forces of creation and destruction so obviously and violently active in a constant battle of Earth, Water, Wind and Fire. To really plug into the primal power source that is Iceland´s unspoilt Nature, we believe you need space, time and personal attention. That’s been Mountain Taxi´s job for over 20 years.
Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights
Iceland may be simply the best place on Earth to view the Aurora Borealis – The Northern Lights. To experience this eternally mystical spectacle, you need is to be under the Northern Lights Belt: Iceland is. You need darkness: Iceland has, in winter. And, to multiply your sighting chances, you need a local Aurora hunting specialist who just loves to see your beaming face under an Aurora-lit sky. That’ll be Mountain Taxi.
Viking History and Vibrant Culture
Some say half the Icelanders are writing books for the other half doing painting and sculpture. In fact, many dabble in both. Not forgetting the incredible music scene. Yet the Icelanders speak the expanded language of the ancient Norse. Festivals, exhibitions, visual arts, performing arts, name your preference, Mountain Taxi connects you.
The One and Only Blue Lagoon
On this planet, there is only one like it. The Blue Lagoon´s smooth, warm, milky bathwater wells up as hot steam from a depth of about 2.000 metres. This excludes any surface contamination, and this unique water has clinically proven to have medicinal effect on your skin. And yes, it´s blue.

I have been lucky to visit Iceland several times over the past years. With Mountain Taxi ( Kristjan and his team ) It's a tour with exceptionally knowledgeable guides who leave you at the end of your trip getting "it" - I'll be back.Shannon GuihanVisited April 2015

Had a fantastic drive with Kristjan as our driver / guide! The atmosphere was relaxed, yet informative. Kristjan is having fun as an experienced driver and still showing the nature respect. I give the company my warmest recommendation.Louise B, Randers - DenmarkVisited March 2016
Just got back from an amazing 6 day experience in Iceland with a small private group tour organized by Mountain Taxi. Our driver/guide, Kristjan, was tireless in his efforts to ensure we had an incredible trip. I highly recommend them.Haifa - IsraelVisited March 2016
This company was amazing and the Jeeps we drove around in are as much fun to ride in as seeing all the amazing sites in Iceland. I loved this company so much I recommended them to family on there visit. They also had a great experience!Chris B - WashingtonVisited February 2016
