Sóti Summits is a North Iceland travel agency, operated by Icelanders with a desire for adventure travel and inspired by the pristine nature of northern Iceland and the Troll Peninsula
We design our experiences based on our own passion for nature, adventure, and sustainability.
Icelands natural environment is at the core of our experiences and we take every measure to ensure that it will be there for years to come. We demonstrate our ambitions for sustainability through our practices, basing our products on local expertise and immersive discovery by foot or bike, rather than long distance driving and destination sampling.
Our trips are hand-crafted with the exploring adventurer in mind and through them we can share our passion for the stunning Troll Peninsula and the north of Iceland. All our experiences showcase the region through tours and activities, and also through delicious local food and superb accommodation.
Last but not least, our people. Our local guides are our backbone. With extensive outdoor adventure experience coupled with in-depth knowledge of local stories and history, you are in good hands.
We can’t wait to show you the north we know.

Ólöf Ýrr og Arnar Þór
In the autumn of 2015, Arnar Þór Árnason and Ólöf Ýrr Atladóttir purchased the old school building at Sólgarðar in the beautiful region of Fljót. The main attractions were the tremendous access to nature and the outdoors that the place provided, but they also harbored a dream of offering high-quality lodgings for like-minded visitors craving natural experiences, adventure, tranquility – and a place to breathe. Our aim is to offer a haven for our guests while providing keys to immersive experiences in the great outdoors of the Troll Peninsula and the beautiful region of Fljót to explorers near and far. We base our operations on ambitions of responsible and sustainable tourism, sourcing local food, local know-how, and local adventure.
