Overview

MudShark is a small adventure and outdoors company that operates from Hella in South Iceland. We offer private guided tours in South Iceland either tailor-made or prepackaged. Super Jeep tours to Landmannalaugar or Thorsmork on our Land Rover Defender are our most popular tours. Our speciality though, not offered by anyone else, is a private guided shark-surf-fishing tour at Thykkvibaer beach in south Iceland (summer). We also organize short fishing trips to highland lakes close to Landmannalaugar. Another tour that is only offered by MudShark tours is an educational eco tour on the state of ecosystems of Iceland, degradation and ecological restoration with a PhD botanist (all year). In winter, we can take you on a Northern lights hunting tour into the mountains. Lastly we offer a relaxed 2 hr. walk-about in Hella village, the hometown of MudShark's owner (all year). In our tours, experienced guides pick you up at hotels in the Hella-Hvolsvollur region and take you touring.
