WE ARE PINK ICELAND
"Pink Iceland started as project for an MA Tourism course I was doing back in 2010 where I came up with and created a business plan for an LGBTQI+ tour and travel company serving the community Im so proud to belong to. I ended up submitting the business plan to innovation incubator Gulleggið where it was chosen to be one of 10 ideas to go through the incubating process. To make a long story short we got came in third and won a small cash prize. With the support of my then partner, now amazing wife, Birna Hrönn we took the leap and decided to officially start Pink Iceland. We got in touch with our friend Hannes (Sasi) and asked him to work with us on developing a logo and website. Sasi matched our enthusiasm for the project and we all quickly sensed that this was a journey that we would take together and he became the third partner, the third point in the triangle that represents Pink Iceland and the history that enabled us to lead the lives we do today. The three of us worked tirelessly in a small room we got to rent from the LGBTQ+ Center in Reykjavik as we established ourselves as the first and foremost Queer travel, event and wedding planner in Iceland. Now, having succeeded in that mission we are proud to lead a team of amazing human beings that believed in our mission and joined us in creating the caring and kind workplace we look forward to showing up to every day. Our dedication is as much to our team as it is to our clients because know that without these extraordinary people we would not be here today"
