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!
