Pink Iceland Gay Owned Travel Agency, Tour Operator in Reykjavik, Iceland
Pink Iceland was founded in 2011 by Eva Maria and Birna who shortly thereafter asked one of their friends, Hannes (a.k.a. Sasi) to join the company. Their tiny start-up is now the first and foremost Queer travel, event and wedding planner in Iceland.
Now, having succeeded in their mission Pink Iceland employs seven full time members of staff as well as a few freelance tour guides at any given time. Many things have changed since those first years, not least the clientele which now sees many straight allies of the LGBTQI+ community seeking Pink Iceland's help with planning their nuptials and/or travels in Iceland. This despite having never lost their queer focus. As Eva (Pink Mama) puts it: "We are proud of who we are and the community we serve. If anyone has a problem with that, we wouldn't really want to work with them anyway!
We believe in creating unforgettable experiences and lasting memories. We will always try to match, or beat, online prices for accommodation, activities and services, while still offering 24/7 access to a real human being, ready willing and able to assist you with all your needs.
Our Upcoming Tours
Pink Snaefellsnes Peninsula - Iceland, Reykjavik: Hotel Pick Up
The landscape of the Snaefellsnes peninsula, with its contrasts and diversity, is something you'll want to experience. We'll drive through the quaint fishing villages of the northern shore where you'll see one of Iceland’s most picturesque mountains, Kirkjufell and Kirkjufellsfoss waterfall. We'll then enter the Snaefellsjokull National Park, named after the Snaefellsjokull stratovolcano which towers over the area. The 700,000 year old volcano, now covered by a glacier bearing the same name, is where Jules Verne found the entrance to the center of the earth. Maybe your journey will be just as eventful...
The park is covered by the fields of lava that have flowed down the slopes of the volcano creating a truly unique landscape of moss covered lava fields, black pebble beaches, towering coastline cliffs and other wonders.
Said to be one of the seven great energy centres of the earth, the glacier has been attributed various mysterious powers.

Glacier carved landscape and ancient curvy rivers, Iceland;s largest lava cave and the worlds' most powerful hot spring - These are just few of our favorite things on Pink Iceland West Safari. On our journey West we will drive through the tranquil Whale fjord "bay" - which is rarely visited these days. The name gift of Whale fjord bay is uncertain but most believe the name derives from an old legend of Raudhofdl the infamous Red Headed Whale whose Reign of terror ended with his heart exploding on top of Whale Mountain. But like so many of our folktales it all started with a furious elf.

Pink Golden Circle Day Tour - Iceland, Reykjavik: Hotel Pick Up
Your Golden Circle journey will begin or end by treading in the footsteps of the Vikings at Thingvellir National park. You'll walk through the gorges, that are being torn apart as the tectonic plates rip away from each other and if you listen closely, you just might hear the echos of the vikings deliberating at this UNESCO world heritage site of the first parliament in the world.
The renowned Geysir geothermal area is not to be missed as you'll walk the path through boiling ground, but be on your guard as the geyser Strokkur will erupt when you least expect it. Be careful, this place is hot hot hot!
The majestic waterfall Gullfoss is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful in the world. It was so cherished by the locals in the countryside that the local woman Sigridur Tomasdottir often walked all the way to Reykjavik to try and prevent it from being harnessed for electricity. This was in the early 20th century, before they had built roads in the area.
Pink South Shore Adventure - Iceland, Reykjavik: Hotel Pick Up
The South Shore Safari will take you through the breadbasket of Iceland on your way to the gems of the south.

Reynisfjara beach, with its basalt column cliffs, is a particular favorite of the south. The crashing waves of the open Atlantic break on the black sandy beach of Reynisfjara which is quite picturesque with its mountainous backdrop.
