Elias Arnars Iceland Travel Look-Book

Time for a peek at another Iceland Travel Look-Book!

When you live in Iceland you better enjoy the outdoors to experience everything Iceland has to offer! This week it´s local Icelander @eliasarnars that open’s his Travel Look-Book!

“I am just a kid from Iceland who really likes to go outside,” says Elías. His passion lies in the field of photography, nature and traveling. He works as a park ranger for the Vatnajökull national park as well as a photographer and visual artist. He tries to mix up his passion for photography with nature abundant work of the park ranger and represents that in his works.

Elías has an Instagram account for photography and tries as he best can to encourage people and educate them about climate change and nature conservation. That, however, has not been the prime point lately but is definitely the long-term goal and one of the main reasons he keeps doing it.

His favorite place in Iceland is not to be revealed to everybody as he thinks that only the informed and sensible travelers should visit it because of it’s sensitive and fragile nature. Hint: it’s in the national park of Vatnajökull.

Two years ago Elías began his nomadic adventure of becoming a photographer and park ranger and ever since that started he has had a burning passion for all things related. It is truly an environment for the introvert human being and protecting something as beautiful and striking as the Icelandic nature has given him a greater meaning to his works.

When arriving in a new place, Elías usually observes it and its surroundings with no camera. Then its straight to the creative part and after shooting for a while comes another moment of tranquility before heading back to the road.

Glacial touring with mountaineers was a special experience for us. I took my best friend Úlfar Viktor and we headed to an incredibly remote place on the east side of Langjökull glacier. Being in the middle of the glacier with such nice people as a memory we will never forget.

Elías has lots of plans for the future of his work. Starting the year 2018 is a trip to several countries around Asia and America and after that is a trip to Greenland and the Arctic. Documenting his journey and observing corners of this world that sometimes go unseen is a privilege and his main goal will always be to raise awareness about climate change and nature conservation.

Thank you Elías for sharing your Iceland Travel Look-Book with us and we look forward to following your adventures!

Varnir gegn smitsjúkdómum.

Íslenska

Okkur hjá Mountaineers of Iceland er mjög hugað að öryggi og heilsu starfsmanna og viðskiptavina okkar.  Það er okkur mjög mikilvægt að halda öllu hreinu hjá okkur.  Í einu og öllu förum við eftir hreinlætisplani sem er í öryggisáætlun okkar og tilmælum Landlæknis er varðar hreinlæti.

Þar af leiðandi höfum við gripið til þessa ráðstafanna vegna Covid-19 og annarra sambærilegra smitsjúkdóma:

- Áður en sest er upp í faratæki okkar þurfa allir að sótthreinsa á sér hendurnar. Einnig áður en komið er í starfsstöðvar okkar við Langjökul til að klæða sig í viðeigandi fatnað.
- Viðskiptavinir fá allir hrein buff (höfuðklúta) til þess að fyrirbyggja snertingu við hjálma.
- Við reynum eftir bestu getu að tryggja að það sé 2 metrar á milli viðskiptavina. Við biðjum einnig viðskiptavini okkar að virða 2 metra regluna.

Allir snertifletir eru þrifnir nokkrum sinnum á dag og einnig eru gallarnir og hjálmarnir spreyjaðir með hreinsiefni eftir notkun með efni sem heitir Virkon. Það er sótthreinsandi efni og drepur alla sýkla sem það kemst í snertingu við. Buffin og hanskarnir eru svo þrifin í lok dag og einungis notuð einu sinni á dag til að koma í veg fyrir smit.

We at Mountaineers of Iceland are very concerned about the safety and health of our employees and our customers. It is very important for us to keep everything clean. All in all, we follow a hygiene plan that is in our safety plan and the recommendation of the Medical Director of Health regarding hygiene.
As a result, we have taken these measures for Covid-19 and other comparable infectious diseases:

- Before settling into our vehicles, everyone needs to disinfect their hands. Also before coming to our local offices at Langjökull to dress in appropriate clothing.
- Customers are all given a clean buff (headscarf) to prevent helmet contact.
- We try our best to ensure that it is 2 meters between customers. We also ask our clients to respect the 2-meter rule.

All contact surfaces are cleaned several times a day and also the overalls and helmets are sprayed with detergent after use with a substance called Virkon. It is an antiseptic and kills any germs it comes into contact with. The scarves and gloves are then cleaned at the end of the day and used only once a day to prevent infection.
