OK Adventure

OK Adventure is an independent family company that specializes in small-group tours. The company gets its name from the Ok mountain, the smallest glacier in Iceland.

Whether you are an independent traveler, a family on a new adventure or friends out to explore the world, OK Adventure has something for everyone. Each tour has a maximum number of 8-9 people, which allows for expeditions to be not only unique but also a personalized experience.

We offer a wide range of day tours to choose from and several  multi-day tours, including  a 4-day hiking tour through the Hellismannaleið trail. We also have options for visits to Icelandic horse farms and training centers and horseback riding.

OK Adventure is pleased to offer customized tours. With your own “custom tour”, you can choose from different options to create your perfect excursion.

For your comfort we recommend that you bring warm clothing, rain gear, swimwear and hiking boots when travelling in Iceland.

To us at OK Adventure, it is important to preserve the nature we enjoy. We strive to minimize the negative effects tourism can have on the environment by encouraging our tourists to stay on marked footpaths, not to litter and preferably, refrain from smoking while on the tour.

About Icelandic Horses

For more than a thousand years, from the settlement of t

he country in the late 9th century to the early 20th century, the small but amazingly strong Icelandic horse has played a vital role in Icelandic history. Dubbed “The most useful servant”, many Icelanders credit the horse for the survival of the Icelandic people. The settlers brought with them horses from Norway and the British Isles, strong and muscular they served their masters in war and peace.

In recorded Icelandic history, which spans over 900 years, no horses have been imported to Iceland. In the 11th century import was made illegal, so the present day horse is very similar to what they were 900 years ago. This isolation has preserved certain traits lost to other European horses. Among these are the five gaits the horse is famous for.

In Iceland these gaits are used depending on terrain and preference of the rider. While most horses have three gaits: walk, trot and gallop, the Icelandic horse has two extra gates. Icelanders call them tolt and skeid (pace), with the tolt gate being better known throughout the world. The tolt is a gait in a quartered beat with equal intervals and is a gait that, with unaltered footfall can escalate its swiftness from a mere step to great speed. You can hear the tolt distinctly as a constant four-beat staccato and if you watch a horse in tolt you can see that the horse carries the rider smoothly in an even four-beated rythim, perfectly still in his saddle, without the tossing movement of the trot.

East West

We firmly believe that in order to experience and enjoy all Iceland has to offer, one must let go of time and give into nature. Therefore our aim is to travel in adequate speed, make frequent stops for best photo opportunities possible and enjoy our journey together. Our trips are operated in Super Jeeps and Sprinter but for more information, tailor made trips and other vehicle requests, please contact us.

Slow drive
Iceland is a beautiful country with various scenes of nature. It is very photogenic and each scenery takes time to inhale and grasp. Therefore it is our mission to cover our journey in a manner that is relaxing, enjoyable and memorable.

Locations usually bear a lot of stories, whether they are of Vikings, Elves, Trolls or modern Icelandic people. These stories are both full of knowledge and good humor. Lets take in all the landscape, stories and atmosphere in good time.

 

Great rides
In order to ensure both safety and comfort we operate in vehicles designed for Icelandic conditions. We offer both minibuses and enhanced Super Jeeps to be able to meet rapid weather conditions. There is an Icelandic saying: „If you don´t like the weather, then just wait 5 minutes.“

It is quite an experience to ride in a Super Jeep. Huge tires (42″) can take you over big rivers and up to glaciers to a fantastic view and the unique cold that comes from the massive ice. Our Sprinter is a very comfortable ride and suits perfectly for observing all the miscellaneous scenes of nature on the route.

Secret spots
Geysir, Gullfoss, Þingvellir, Jökulsárlón, the Blue Lagoon. These are all fantastic phenomenons. But there are countless other precious gems spread around the country. Why limit your visit to what everybody else is doing?

Come see waterfalls, geysers, caves, beaches and lava fields covered with moss just as astonishing and hear stories in the meantime.

 

 

After all, we are on holiday.
