This winter, Björn Borgþór Þorbergsson and his friends, Jón Tryggvi Þórsson and Skúli Gunnar Sigfússon, started a company called Blue Iceland, offering hiking and ice cave tours on the glaciers Breiðamerkurjökull, from which Jokulsarlon´s massive icebergs break and where the breathtaking ice caves are visited, and Svínafellsjökull, an area especially notable for its diverse natural beauty. An invaluable part of the Blue Iceland team, Gunnar Guðjónsson and Fie Nordahl, professional glacier guides, make sure that all guests experience a safe and enjoyable glacier adventure.
