                                               Meet Petur

Petur (or simply Peter) has been involved in outdoor activities his whole life, growing up in Iceland has given him a world of opportunities to connect with the nature. Petur started fishing at the age of 11 and since then has been involved massively as both a hobbyist & professionally and more recently has become a serious mountain bike competitor. After spending the summer of 2006 working as a fishing guide at Hofsa river lodge, Petur realised his passion & then began his quest to share this love of outdoor activities, in particularly the Icelandic nature with the world.

„The feeling of togetherness you get when competing or simply being in the nature with an intimate group is like none other, I started Icelandic Elements to share this feeling with you through my guided tours & activities.“ –  Pétur Benedikt Rafnsson head Guide and founder of Icelandinc Elements
