GJ Travel

INTRODUCTION TO GUÐMUNDUR JÓNASSON TRAVEL

For more than 85 years, our company has hosted travelers from all corners of the world. Through Guðmundur Jónasson Travel, also called GJ Travel, many have returned time and time again together with their families and friends, to experience Iceland’s unique, beautiful nature and historical traditions. Our dedicated team never lose sight of the ‘personal touch,’ and work hard to ensure that the varied and interesting itineraries offered by GJ Travel provide fully for the needs of today’s travelers.

A coach company

Our company was formed in 1929 when our founder Guðmundur Jónasson obtained his first driving license. Fascinated by the seldom explored interior, he ventured out to the highlands and even onto the glaciers, opening up a whole new world to the 20th-century traveler. Since his death in 1985, his family has continued to share his love and enthusiasm for Iceland, and are committed to introducing even more interesting tours and adventures for everyone to enjoy. We also own a fleet of modern, comfortable buses which range in size from 16 to 69 seats and in addition have a number of 4 wheel drive and high clearance buses which are specifically adapted for Highland travel. All our buses offer free Wi-Fi.

Scheduled escorted round trips and group tours

We offer scheduled tours, our highly experienced Group Planning Department can create itineraries to suit particular needs. These include specific ‘special interest’ tours for groups keen on photography, bird watching or geology – and for school trips, as well as organizing walking and natural history tours. They will arrange for all accommodation and transportation – which can include camping, farmhouse accommodation and/or hotels – and we always provide a specialist tour guide.

Explore Iceland and Greenland with GJ Travel

We are also experienced in organizing travel to Greenland. Trips to West-, South- or East Greenland can either be added to an existing or specially created Icelandic itinerary or treated as stand-alone destinations.

Whatever your needs – from just a city transfer to a complete package – the team at Guðmundur Jónasson look forward to helping to make your visit to Iceland really special.

GJ Travel Iceland welcomes you!

Pink Iclenad

From Iceland, with love
Pink Iceland owners (from left): Hannes, Eva María & Birna Hrönn
Pink Iceland is Iceland’s first and foremost gay owned and operated travel expert and your first stop when traveling to Iceland. Pink Iceland was founded by lesbian couple Eva María & Birna in March 2011 and in early 2012 their friend Hannes joined forces and the trio now owns and runs the company together with love. Pink Iceland works for and with the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender) community and specializes in day tours (gay tours), weddings, international and domestic events and festivals as well as organizing tailor-made luxury travel. With decades of combined experience in the tourism industry we guarantee a professional service, but perhaps more importantly a personal one. We at Pink Iceland pick our partners carefully, making sure our guests experience Iceland at its best and friendliest.

​Pink Iceland offers a free booking service* and welcomes enquiries about LGBT life in Iceland.

By booking with Pink Iceland you will have a gay friendly experience through its partners which are either gay owned, gay operated or gay friendly. Pink Iceland will make sure to give you all the inside information in the Icelandic LGBT community you’ll need and some great added value. With
this Icelandic velvet mafia’s great cooperation we hope to make your stay unforgettable, and we celebrate the fact that you are supporting the Pink Pound.

*HONESTY POLICY
Pink Iceland is a privately owned company and as such it needs to make a profit. This profit pays the salaries of its staff, the rent, the wonderful and informative Pink Iceland website not to mention copious amounts of coffee for the owners. Most of Pink Iceland’s money is made through commissions. This is how it works: If our guests let us book their tours, activities, and accommodation we collect a small (usually 10-15%) commission of the price. This basically means that you pay the same price, regardless of whether you book directly – or through us. You may think this might cause us to recommend really expensive accommodation and tours. Not so. We promise to do our utmost to come up with a plan that suits you, and your budget. We would never recommend anything without full confidence and/or personal experience of what’s on offer. Our primary goal is working with and for the LGBTQI community and without the community’s support or goodwill we wouldn’t have lasted six months in the business. It is not least through word of mouth that we grow stronger every day. Our hope is that after reading this you too will ask for our recommendations and advice and/or book your holiday through us.

Innovation Award in 2012
​Pink Iceland received the 2012 Innovation award from the Travel Industry Association. The award was presented to us by the President of Iceland.

IGLTA member
Pink Iceland is a proud member of the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association and takes proactively part in their work.

Goecco Eco Tours

Whether you go on one of our hikes, day-tours, or private tours we’ll show you the real Iceland: the serene, the thunderous, the quaint, and the surreal. Goecco is about experiencing Iceland off the beaten track on our down-to-earth tours, guided by real men and women.

As we are huge fans of the peaceful, beautiful Iceland we often follow the winding road to the places others don’t go. And when we do go the popular spots, we make an effort to be there during ‘quiet’ times. As we go along we throw in a bit of good music, local food and just enjoy real people talking to real people!

We are known for finding new places and inventing new tours. We don’t work with big corporations, agents or booking engines. We work with local people, finding new places to sleep, eat and experience Iceland.

We make an effort to work with likeminded people, who love and respect nature and other human beings. We don’t choose our guides from their guide school certificate but from their life experience and personality.

So if you want a big, fancy tour bus going from sterile photo opportunity to photo opportunity, we are not for you – but if you are looking for a road trip with good friends – come along with an open heart and a generous spirit!
