Wide Open is a young company based in Akureyri, the cosy little capital of the north of Iceland, that lies deep in the majestic Eyjafjörður. We offer guided hiking and snowshoe trips in small groups. Off season is our main season.
We speak English, French, Spanish, Icelandic and Dutch.
Our experience and passion lies in discovering this arctic island on foot.
The feeling of not meeting anyone for days, not needing anything else then what you carry on your back and being surrounded by pristine nature fills us with a sense of intense freedom and joy. After years of guiding trekkings and hikes all around Iceland, we still get excited every time we put on our hiking boots.
Walking makes people happy as if that is what human beings are made for.
Wide Open is run by Leo Broers and An-Katrien Lecluyse.
For the guide work, exploring and trekking Leo is your man. He's passionate about the Icelandic mountains, the stories, the people and he brings his enthousiam to you in a way you will not quickly forget... His many years of experience in guiding trekkings and tours on this rocky island made him an excellent guide and a lucky man.
His wife An-Katrien can't wait to join him again, but takes the rhythm of their little baby for now.
