We at Extreme Iceland regard everything in Iceland as extreme, the nature, the landscape, the weather, the conditions and the beauty and we intend to keep it that way for future generations to come. As proud as we are to show our country off to our visitors, we aim to do so in a manner that preserves the unspoiled, fragile and clean environment.

We understand that with the growing tourism industry in Iceland, with more and more people visiting our country's most precious assets, that there is a higher risk of our unspoiled nature being corrupted. We make it our responsibility to make sure that we operate our business without damaging or harming the environment in any way. We carefully design our tours in a matter that our visits leave no permanent damage to the nature.

All Extreme Iceland's staff and guides are commited to follow our environmental policy and to educate our guests on how to help us perserve the Icelandic nature.
