OUR AMAZING JOURNEY
Read about our journey and what we stand for.
You can make the most of your valuable time in Iceland by choosing the option of a customised private tour. If you are travelling independently, with the family or a group of friends or colleagues, private tours are designed to cater to your specific interests and time constraints.
Whether you have a full day, several days, or just part of the day free for exploring Iceland, our service is uniquely crafted to maximise your experience.
Luckily, many of our natural wonders are within easy reach of Reykjavík so, if time is an issue, we can still guarantee some marvellous lasting impressions.
The Amazing Basecamp team has a well-earned reputation for fulfilling special security briefs and understanding the importance of privacy to people of international standing. Our proven discretion makes us increasingly Iceland’s transport company of choice by foreign dignitaries and other well-known faces on private visits. Our combined knowledge of this lovely and extraordinary country has established our name with film location scouts, geologists and volcanologists, the foreign press and television journalists, all of whom require the sort of flexibility and expertise we excel in providing.
Tailormade Private tours
AMAZING was founded in 2004 and boasts of decades of experience and passion for travel in Iceland. With years of experience and passion for this stunning island we call home we tailor-make the once-in-a-lifetime experience for our guests. We are passionate about travelling in Iceland and being updated on where to find the best possible experiences.
With Amazing Basecamp we will put our emphasis on offering quality adventures four our guests, where we aim to enjoy every moment. The Basecamp is located in the middle of the Golden Circle - almost midway between the world renowned Geysir and the thundering waterfall Gullfoss and is the ideal stop if you are looking for activities in the south.
When arriving at our Amazing Basecamp you will find Skjól Bistró that offers the taste of Iceland both with mouth-watering food and local beer. Then it’s picking the adventure that will make your day. We can offer thrilling snowmobiling tours on Langjökull glacier, and in the wintertime we can even combine the wonder that is a natural Ice cave. Buggy cars are based on Skjól as well and if you want to be a bit more physical than a Fat bike ride in the forest of Haukadalur is a unique experience. Kayaking is as well available all around the south of Iceland and we can tailor make the tour depending on your needs.
Then when the adventure tour is done and you have enjoyed some catering at Skjól Bistró then it is ideal to relax in geothermal hot water, either at the Secret Lagoon or Fontana spa, both just a short drive from us.
If you are staying in the Golden Circle we can as well offer you a private northern light tour in the wintertime, where our expert guide will truly hunt for the stunning aurora borealis that will light up the sky.
If you are travelling in Iceland and want to explore what the land of ice and fire has to offer then please don't hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to guide you in finding the best possible adventure.
We are registered as a tour operator with the Icelandic Tourist Board.
All our Tours are available as Private Tours.

Skjól Camping and restaurant was built June 1, 2014. Our restaurant and bar now have 100 seats in a very cozy and homey environment. Our menu has a variation of the best Icelandic ingredients to offer. During lunch we often offer a soup buffet,the unique Icelandic meat soup and of course a vegan option as well while during the evening we go for hamburgers and homemade pizzas. Something for everyone.
If you have made it to stay until the later hour, you might hear some acoustic music being played, or if you have a talent for playing music. In Skjól our instruments are for everyone to play, and don't be surprised if you hear:
"If you play three songs and get an applause, you´ll get a free beer on the house"
