This is who we are


We have a lot of B.A. and M.Sc. degrees in this and that.
We are also humans, and really nice ones. We make an awesome team with all our little quirks and that is what really matters.

Friðrik

Owner

Fridrik is not only a famous salsa dancer, he is also the founder of Eskimos. Since 2000, his company has grown to be one of the leading travel agencies in Iceland, known for its responsiveness and personal services.

Jean

General Manager

It's a bit embarrassing for the rest of us, but this Frenchman’s knowledge of Iceland is way better than the average Icelander's, including the rest of the office.

In his free time he plays darts and he honestly does have the potential to become a professional dart player. Also he grows the most complex and sturdy beard, making him more of a Viking than any of us!

Jean

Tryggvi

Finance

Do you think math is difficult & boring? Well Tryggvi most certainly does not! He is the master of numbers, so not just the pretty face you see on the photo!

He is the type to bend over backwards to get where he wants & to get results. That is not figuratively speaking since he is over 200 cm tall, he literally needs to bend to get through doorways in the office.

Tryggvi is very helpful when it comes to numbers and in the cafeteria at lunch as well when he happily operates the microwave oven located out of reach for everyone else.

Heba

Accounting Assistant

Heba is an invaluable member of our team - a combination of diverse talent and sharp skills, both of which are super useful in our line of business! Her detail-oriented thinking and organizational skills have earned her the nickname Heba Hetja (Heba Hero). She may come across as shy but that’s simply down to the fact that instead of nattering away, her time is more wisely spent spotting any booking discrepancies and informing the rest of the team so that we can find a quick solution and ensure that everything runs smoothly.

She’s always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone in need and, in turn, functions as Eskimos’ “stress-vent,” taking some pressure off anyone who feels too swamped - she can do anything! 

Loïc Björn

Regional Manager - Europe, Asia & Middle East

Loïc is not only a travel expert, he can whip himself into virtually any role we need. He can guide, cook, dance, speak Japanese, bake amazing cakes… the list of his many talents goes on forever. Mostly he’s just a really nice guy and a total gentleman who’ll plan your Iceland itinerary down to the tiniest details to make sure it’s the trip of a lifetime!

Loïc is Frenchman Number 2.5 on the Eskimos team, as he’s also half-Icelandic. I guess there is just something about these Frenchmen, we just keep on adding them to our team.

Þóra

Regional Manager - Americas

Our Þóra is a mystery to us - how does she do it? This former Reykjavík party girl turned a calm country belle has extensive knowledge of our beautiful country. A simple day tour will turn into a magical adventure in her hands. Not only has Þóra traveled extensively around our amazing island but her exotic adventures abroad give us the chills. She has traveled the highlands of Iceland under dancing Northern lights during the cold winter nights and walked the edge of a bubbling volcano in Nicaragua. What a superwoman! And even though nowadays you will probably find her cuddled up with a good red wine in her cute country house, you can drag the party girl out on the town with a promise of a good tequila!

Þóra

Andri Þór

Travel Expert

Andri is the most relaxed person in the office, which may well be down to the fact that he was raised in California. He never removes his Oakland Athletics cap, though we are not even sure if he actually likes baseball.

He owns the most impressive collection of vinyls in Iceland and for him a good Friday evening entails enjoying some classic ‘90s tunes while swigging the cheapest beer to be found in the alcohol store. One piece of advice: don’t call him on Tuesdays! He has his weekly poker game every Monday so he might not be in the mood…

Andri Þór

Hildur

Sales & Operations

 

This is Hildur, or Snilldur, as we sometimes call her. “​Snilld“ means “awesome” in Icelandic; if someone tells you something amazing, you can say: “Wow Snilld!”

Hildur has many qualities other than being just awesome, she is super efficient and she will make your stay in Iceland just perfect with all her little details and all her triple-checking everything.

Hildur

Inga

Travel Expert

Ooh how much you don‘t know about Inga, other than being one of the nicest persons you will ever meet, she is a former beauty queen of the North and once the Icelandic Glíma champion.

Inga is of course much more than just a pretty face and strong muscles, she has got the brains and the organizing skills as well so if you want your holiday in good hands, Inga is your expert!

Inga

Rakel

Travel Expert

While Rakel may come across as sweet and humble, do not underestimate this girl’s abilities as behind the charisma, there lies a fierce woman prepared to take on whatever needs to be done! She is a force of nature even when faced with the most gargantuan of tasks and it is rumoured that she makes the meanest screwdriver north of the Panama Canal

She is known to be extremely habitual, always cooking her lunch early in the morning, and yes, it is the same vegan lunch every single day! Rakel loves to travel, often finding herself in the middle of nowhere, but she is not adverse to luxury and is very keen on combining the two.
This lioness is an integral member of our FIT department and so if you ever want to travel to Iceland, Rakel is your go-to girl!

Rakel

Steinunn Ósk

Travel Expert
Steinunn is an adventurer and has travelled all over the world as well as within Iceland. For the last few years, she has taken up hiking and has reached considerably more summits than she can count. Although she enjoys fitness and keeping active, she loves a good cake as well and the cakes she bakes and brings to the office always go down a storm. But what we all love most about Steinunn is her sarcastic humour so just sit back and relax when this girl gets going with one of her classic anecdotes!
Steinunn Ósk

Sebastien

Sales & Marketing

Sebastien is an adventurer and that is best described by how he came to move to Iceland. He literally took a globe, made it spin and put his finger down. After moving to the far away land of Ice, this ever optimistic Frenchman found his calling in getting more travelers to discover our island.

Sure, we sometimes make fun of his accent, but his organizing skills are nothing to joke around with!

Sebastien

Sara

Creative director

Sara keeps Eskimos cool, she can literally make anything look good! She is a fabulous photographer and we are very happy to be molded by Sara‘s imagination.

Apart from being the artistic eye we look to, she is also an avid baker, that quality of hers results in very happy staff and happy staff create happy itineraries.

Sara is truly as sweet as the cookies she bakes, the type that couldn’t hurt a fly!

Sara

Ragnar

Car & office maintenance specialist

“Keep calm and call Ragnar” is a quote often used in the office.

Eskimos would never work without Ragnar. He is our glue, our savior of many things. For example, he is the head of the coffee machine and keeps the coffee running in our veins - oh and he is also the maintenance guy among other things, he can basically fix anything!
