Active North

Active North specializes in day-and private tours in Northern Iceland. Active North was founded in 2012 and is currently based in Ásbyrgi inside Vatnajökull National Park. We offer tours in various categories; horseback riding, mountain biking, super-jeep/excursions and horse carriage. Our main focus is on smaller and private groups, because our main goal is to make sure that our customers experience the magic of Iceland in comfort, at you own pace and with the people you chose. Quality is very important to us and in 2014 Active North received the official "Vakinn" quality certifications. To our customers this means that; you will have a great tourism experience, you can book with confidence, the business operates in an ethical, professional and environmentally friendly and sustainable way, and the business has the required systems and policies for a safe and happy holiday in Iceland We always aim to keep our tours/business as sustainable as possible. It is very important to us that our staff and guests disrupt the environment as little as possible, therefore it is crucial that our staff and guests are aware of the following rules; we always follow marked trails/roads meant for horses, bikes, humans or cars, we try to minimize and recycle our waste as much as possible. The fact that we mainly operate inside Vantajökull National Park makes it extremely important that we follow the rules stated. All our tours are available all year round, but Active North reserves the right to alter tours and itineraries due to weather or road conditions. All programs can be changed or cancelled at any moment during the trip to assure the safety of clients and staff.

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
