A Family Legacy: The U 39 Ford

Our story begins in 1939, in the serene town of Djúpivogur, where Jón Karlsson, the grandfather of our lead guide Biggi, purchased a brand-new Ford. This vehicle was special because it bore the distinctive registration number U 39. Jón utilised this Ford for various purposes, including passenger transportation, making it an essential part of his life and the local community.

Fast forward 82 years, and this remarkable story takes an even more fascinating turn. Biggi’s father, Jóhann, continuing the family tradition, bought a Ford for passenger transportation. In an extraordinary twist of fate, he managed to secure the same registration number, U 39. Today, this modern Ford stands as a testament to our family’s dedication to providing exceptional transportation services. Throughout the winter Jóhann uses the bus to transport the children of the neighboring fjords to school and during the summer he offers tours to visiting tourists.
