Jake Thompson

Jake’s born in Rome, lived in London and Dhaka, but left all for a rugged 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 pleasure if it’s not already and you’ll be convinced to settle here too!

CHECK THE OTHERS!

Rúnar Karlsson

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 Guðmundsdóttir

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.

Regína Sif Rúnarsdóttir

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?

Davíð Hjaltason

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!

Stjáni (Kristján R Guðmundsson)

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 Auðardóttir

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.
