Happy Campers was founded in 2009 by husband and wife team Sverrir and Herdis. Since then, it has been a growing family business where every single traveler that comes through our door joins our Happy family. Our mission is to make everybody who walks through our door a happy camper while in Iceland. We hope that you join the Happy family.
Get to know us a little bit better below before we see you in Iceland.
Herdis founded Happy Campers in Iceland in 2009 and is the 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.
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.”
Jón literally runs the place, taking care of daily operations at the office. In other words, he's our Operations Manager and makes sure everything runs smoothly. His 197 cm have been put to good use on the basketball court but more recently he has been into all sorts of sports, including triathlons and strength training. Jón has a Bachelor's in Sports Science.
Haukur is our CFO and financial guru. 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. Haukur is currently working on his Master's of Corporate Finance.
Torsteinn (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.
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.
Greta is our marketing manager. She came to Iceland to visit a friend, fell in love with the country and never left. Now she's on a mission to help everybody to visit Iceland. She is an avid reader and is currently working on her M.A. in literature, culture and media.
Our office manager Ohana runs things like a ninja. A skill she developed by raising three daughters. Ohana takes care of everything - from answering phones to filling up the coffee machine (often all at the same time). She's here to help travelers have the best time in our campervans.
Benjamin is a natural when it comes to being nice and helpful. He's on a mission to make sure everybody that comes through our doors has a great experience. Although his favorite part of the job might be selecting music to play in the office each morning.
Kamil is our head mechanic and there is nothing he can't fix. He is from Poland and has now convinced us that it's the second most beautiful country in the world, after Iceland of course. When he's not fixing cars, you'll find him at the nearest trout lake doing his thing and catching lots of fish.
Together with Kamil, Damian is part of our garage dream team. He is always ready to jump into a car to help any happy camper on the road, if needed. On his leisure time he spends time playing and teaching kids how to play table tennis.
