About the tour

We start our visit at Skogafoss waterfall and explore it a bit and then we move to the Skogar outdoor museum to visit one of Icelands finest collection of genuine houses donated to the museum and rebuilt here in exactly the original form. We will be introduced to the form and function by a museum guide leading us into the life and struggles of my nation over the centuries.

What to expect

Get ready for something special. We're travelling to Iceland with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you'll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing guide.

The tour will last about 35 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Iceland. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.

Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.

I set the whole day aside to tour with Albert and it was worth it. An amazing journey, nature’s artist at its best guided by Albert who is passionate about his country. Albert has provided two of my best days out during lockdown.
