Happy Campers was founded in 2009 by Herdis and Sverrir and is first and foremost a family business. We’re a family that believes that traveling should be a simple, easy, and fun experience, not a hassle. Making that a reality for all the happy campers that come through our doors is our primary goal and the reason we show up to work every day.
"The Happy rookie"
Fanndis is quickly turning from a rookie to a pro, both at the office and on the basketball court. She is Sverrir and Herdis' only daughter and the youngest of the bunch. At the office, she's nice and friendly but it's a different story if you see her playing basketball.
“Ms. Happy Excel”
As our bookkeeper, Gerður makes sure that all of our numbers add up. When the rest of the team is busy building campers or helping Happy travelers, Gerður is taking care of business behind the scenes.
"The Happy darling"
Glódís is a natural when it comes to being nice and helpful. She is the office darling and doesn't have a mean bone in her body. She's on a mission to make sure everybody that comes through our doors has a good experience.
“The Happy rockstar”
Haukur is the youngest son and only recently joined Happy Campers full time after graduating from university. He will happily jump from financial analysis to picking up travelers from the airport. He’s a talented guitar player and is not afraid of busting out guitar solos randomly. That automatically makes him cool as a cucumber.
“The Happy golfer”
Herdis founded Happy Campers in Iceland in 2009 and is the CFO of Happy Campers Iceland and head of Travel Agency relations globally. She has a serious case of the golf bug and can't think of better ways to spend her time than playing golf in Iceland, South Africa and other beautiful countries.
“The Happy athlete”
Jón is Sverrir and Herdís’ second oldest son and he literally runs the place, taking care of daily operations at the office. His 197 cm have been put to good use on the basketball court but more recently he has been running triathlons and riding his motorcycle.
“The Happy mechanic”
Pawel makes sure that your camper van is ready to go when you start your trip. You can hear him laughing from miles away and he’s the most optimistic guy you’ll find. There’s nothing this man can’t fix and we would be lost without this Polish charmer.
“The Happy boss”
Sverrir was the first Icelander to ride his motorcycle around the world. That should sum up his passion for travel and adventure perfectly. He founded Happy Campers with his wife Herdís and is our CEO, but we prefer to call him “the Happy boss”.
"The Happy Quarterback"
Unnsteinn is our Office & Content Manager and runs things at the office like a true quarterback. He's the most polite and patient guy you will ever meet and therefore the perfect guy to help travelers prepare for their campervan trip. He's a true local, living just across the street from the office, and has a seemingly endless inventory of great travel tips.
“The Happy geek”
Þorsteinn (Thor) takes great pride in being a total computer, photography, and marketing geek. When he's not geeking out, he's driving around Iceland in a Happy Camper taking photographs. Coffee and Photoshop make him a happy camper.
