Happy Campers was founded in Iceland in 2009 by Herdis and Sverrir. Their goal was to create the simplest, easiest, and most fun way of traveling and soon the Happy Campers concept was born. After much success and growth in Iceland, Herdis and Sverrir found Eric and Stephan to be the perfect partners to open the first Happy Campers location in South Africa.
We’re a family that believes that traveling should be a simple, easy, and fun experience, not a hassle. Making that a reality for all the happy campers that come through our doors is our primary goal and the reason we show up to work every day.
"The Happy Saffa"
Eric is the CFO of Happy Campers South Africa. He believes South Africa is the best country in the World. Although he likes to crunch the numbers, he has a passion for South African wine, sport & travel.
“The Happy golfer”
Herdis founded Happy Campers in Iceland in 2009 and is the CFO of Happy Campers Iceland and head of Travel Agency relations globally. She has a serious case of the golf bug and can't think of better ways to spend her time than playing golf in Iceland, South Africa and other beautiful countries.
"The Happy Biker"
Stephan founded Happy Campers in South Africa with his business partner Eric. Stephan seeks out adventures whenever he can and can't get enough of biking and trail running.
“The Happy boss”
Sverrir founded Happy Campers with his wife Herdís in Iceland in 2009. He is the CEO of Happy Campers, but we prefer to call him “the Happy boss”.
“The Happy geek”
Þorsteinn (Thor) takes great pride in being a total computer, photography, and marketing geek. He is Sverrir and Herdis' oldest son and is the marketing manager of Happy Campers. Coffee and Photoshop make him a happy camper.
