Rúnar is the founder of our company. The real deal outdoorsman and the multitool you strive to be. The best source of local knowledge who knows every crack, valley, and summit in the mountains and fjords around. Who can say they’ve ice climbed Dynjandi for the challenge and also used that same skill to rescue a missing dog from the icy tops of the surrounding mountains here in Ísafjörður.

Nanný is the driving force and the heart of the company. She was born in Ísafjörður and has lived there most of her life. Her hobbies include cycling, skiing and just being outdoors breathing in the fresh mountain air of the Westfjords. She studied to become a kindergarten teacher, so she has a good knowledge on how to manage a diverse group of people and bring us all together. She joined the company in 2012.

Personable and calming, Regína will ease your concerns that may arise. Consistently making life better for travellers and guides alike, you can’t put value on human kindness. Whether it’s a problem-solving email, or the plants that brighten up the office when you first step into our cozy space. She’s up for a chat, but the question is, are you? Oh yeah, and that problem you had…not so impossible huh?

As local as you can get but will keep you guessing with his charming British accent. A valued member of the office and behind the scenes team, he will ensure that you can spend more time taking it easy. Hakuna Matata!

Captain of our beautiful vessel Sif. Believes that life is better on a boat so will keep us safe and sound while we motor the fjords and pass the most Northern lighthouse in Iceland. He never get’s tired of the sea, his free time he spends exploring the world on his sailboat. Loves a good prank, but don’t worry his target is always the guides.

Sigrún is a local girl that grew up with cross country skis under her feet and kayaking the fjords. She is one of the strongest and most easy going spirit among our staff and fun to be around.

Born and raised in Finland, Joonas found his way to Iceland for his master’s degree in coastal and marine management. He’s been with us for many seasons and was the driving force in making the sauna in Kviar Lodge as you can imagine. Joonas has found the perfect balance by spending the long summer days in Iceland and the winter in Saudi Arabia where he works as a research diver. As a true Finn, Joonas is an avid knitter, and you can find him on social media under @knitting_man

Jake’s born in Rome, lived in London and Dhaka, but left all for open air life in Ísafjörður. He has been with us for the last 4 seasons and quickly became a big part of the Borea family. His positive attitude and jokes will make you fall in love with the geology and flora on our hiking tours. Geology and botany will become your new guilty pleasures if it’s not already and you’ll be convinced to settle here too!

From Michigan US, Justin first came to Ísafjörður in 2017 completing a masters at the University Center of the Westfjords. He fell in love with the place, created the first provincial whale sighting catalogue and has since bought an apartment in town with his girlfriend Michelle. He is an avid hiker and diver, but you can also find him at the local brewery sharing beers with his friends.

Part of the team that built avalanche barriers locally, Justas is definitely comfortable in the mountains. Safety is key at all times, and that is the same standard for the tours he, and all our guides operate. You can count on him to make time for thoughtful conversations. Justas loves ski touring and is passionate about water sports such as kayaking, surfing and wake boarding. Doesn’t miss an opportunity to organise a Lithuanian Sauna session experience.
