Irish monks settle in Papey, a small island off the Eastern
coast of Iceland, to live in peace and solitude.
Visitor’s Guide to
Iceland was first pub-
lished in 1999 and
was only 12 pages
in its first year. Over
the years it has rap-
idly expanded and a range of new
media versions have been launched.
We have also registered the brand in
the European Union and bought the
Internet domains in some 30 countries.
Our plan is to launch or franchise
Visitor´s Guide websites in other mar-
kets and so extend our operations in-
ternationally. To enable us achieve this
goal, we have now entered into a work-
ing partnership with a publishing com-
pany in Iceland. This company already
has a well-established track record, in-
cluding the publishing of their compre-
hensive Iceland Road Guide.
Personally I have travelled to over 50
countries and that has taught me to
appreciate all the more what Iceland
has to offer visitors. I certainly look for-
ward to travelling more, having many
more interesting experiences to relate
and meeting the exciting challenge of
establishing branches internationally.
