Gára Cruise Agency


Gára is the only port agency in Iceland that is completely dedicated to the successful servicing of cruise ships and luxury yachts. Not only do we understand and respect the needs and expectations of our clients, but we pride ourselves on exceeding them at every given opportunity.

Friendly and professional communications, along with a personal attention to detail, lend for smooth, efficient port calls for your vessel — from start to finish. Our head office is located in Reykjavík and we have boarding agents available in all Icelandic ports. Rest assured, we have you covered every step (or nautical mile) of the way.

We also know how important and preferable it is for you to work with just one contact. And as such, you can expect to have one dedicated contact at Gára who will work with and alongside you throughout the call or project.

A large part of our success is down to us working very closely with our parent company TVG-Zimsen. And whilst our colleagues at TVG-Zimsen put their energy and focus into delivering the best in freight logistics; our team at Gára dedicate their time and efforts into meeting the needs of the vessel.

Two teams working with one goal. Servicing your ship(s) in the most efficient way possible. Together, Gára and TVG Zimsen deliver a practical and fully comprehensive array of port services for your vessel, crew and passengers.
