About Gandri Ventures

Gandri Ventures is a small family-run company in Iceland. The owners are Gunnar Andri nicknamed „Gandri“ and his fiancé Birna nicknamed „Ladybear“. They love Iceland and love showing it off to other people.

„Gandri“has always been involved in tourism in Iceland. His Great Grandfather founded one of the oldest coach company’s in Iceland. When Gandri was growing up at his grandparents his grandfather was running the company. Gandri was lucky and got to travel a lot in Icelandic Highlands with his uncle who ran a big Superjeep company.

Gandri always wanted to drive jeeps but he never joined the family company, but driving was always his passion, first as a truck driver than a bus driver and finally a super jeep driver.

He takes his family passion for tourism into his company.

From early age „Ladybear“ travelled around Iceland with her family. Growing up hiking mountains and driving in the highlands gave her the respect and passion for the island and everything it has to offer. One of her passions is photography and wherever she goes her camera is with her. Taking pictures of the northern lights has been one of her favourite’s subjects along with the Icelandic nature. Ladybear takes her love and passion for Iceland and Icelandic nature into the company in hope to share it with other people
