Arnar Fannberg, Guide & Instructor


I was born in Iceland and have been facinated with diving since I was a kid. It wasn’t untill early 2022 I decided to finally take the step and take the open water course with After that there was no turning back. Soon afterwards I had taken the AOW and the Rescue course. And finally in 2023 I took the Divemaster course and the IDC.
Travelling has always been second nature for me, so being able to work in the dive industry and travel the world at the same time is an amazing oppurtunity to be able to see the whole world both above and below sea level. I am also a member in B.A.C.A. (Bikers Against Child Abuse) and have been since 2017. B.A.C.A. is an organization that exists with the intent to create a safer environment for abused children. B.A.C.A. was founded in the USA and has since then spread around the globe. To see a chapter near you, go to

  • “I had such an amazing time with our Icelandic snorkel guide Arnar! He made us feel comfortable and was very reassuring.”

  • “Arnar was a very good guide. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the location and very fun to talk to.”

  • “Arnar gave us a pretrip briefing that helped us understand the historical significance of the Þingvellir site to Icelanders and an overview of what we could experience. Arnar ensured we all had a good time (on his birthday!) including my 12 year old son who was feeling uncomfortable with the drysuit.”

  • “What a unique experience! Great morning and our guide Arnar was so fun! Would definitely recommend.”

  • “Myself and two friends had the pleasure of doing a snorkel tour with Arnar. He was amazing. Very knowledgeable, reassuring and funny to boot! We all felt safe under his instruction and had a great time.”
