Bespoke Private Tours

– Make the best of your time in Iceland –

stepman is Stephan Mantler, AIMG certified glacier and mountain guide, member of the Icelandic search and rescue team, and former professional photographer with over 30 years of experience exploring the outdoors. No matter which adventures you are looking for, his goal is to enable you to go further, see more, and come back with the memories of a lifetime. stepman’s background is a great match for photographers looking for a guide that understands their vision, and for anybody else who is looking for utmost flexibility.

From family friendly excursions to hardcore ice climbing, anything is possible.

The personal touch

All tours are guided by stepman and have the same, consistent high quality guiding that people rave about. And, since you are always dealing with the owner of the company, special requests or changes do not need to be “checked with the office” and any feedback you may have goes directly to where it matters.

Everything is simple, direct and personal. Just like we believe it should be.

Environmentally Aware

stepman cares deeply about the world we live in, and our tours give us unique insights into the processes and changes going on in the world around us. We are happy to share our knowledge, both in our tours and online, and are actively trying to minimize the impact of our activities.

We are only a tiny company, but that is not an excuse to not do the best we can.

Less Impact

Our goal is to have all our activities are effectively carbon negative. We are currently working with the Icelandic Carbon Fund to have all fossil fuel usage offset by planting trees, and we are also converting some of our farm land back to natural vegetation.

Damaged clothing or equipment is repaired or repurposed whenever possible, and when purchasing new gear we give preference to manufacturers that use recycled or sustainable materials.


All offered activities are based on our most popular requests, but always ready to be customized according to your preferences. Book now to reserve your date, and we will follow up to see how we can tailor the day for you.

If you are looking for a completely bespoke adventure that doesn’t seem to fit any of the listed tours, just send us a quick email and we’ll work with you to put together an amazing program!
