Wide Open is a young tour operator based in Akureyri, in the north of Iceland. We guide travellers on beautiful hikes in the North or through winter landscapes on snowshoes. Wide Open is all about walking, nature and exploring new horizons away from the crowd.

There's a hike for every mood and every season of the year.

In June we go further north and hike late in the evening to catch the light of the midnight sun. During the summer we guide day hikes. But our main season is our winter snowshoeing season.

We love hiking and nature

Tourism has a big impact on Iceland as it is increasing very fast. When we go out hiking or snowshoeing we leave nothing but our footprints.


We speak ENGLISH, FRENCH, SPANISH and DUTCH. ICELANDIC is pretty well on the way.

Rain or shine

Almost the whole year round beautiful and refreshing day hikes are possible, for most types of weather and varying degrees of challenge.

Creative and flexible
