About GetLocal

There is no better way to experience a new city than to get local people on the ground who live there giving you advice. With their help, you find all the gems that a casual tourist might not find on their own.

Getlocal is an Icelandic TravelTech startup founded by some avid travellers who felt they needed to get a more local and better advice from people with similar tastes and they can trust.

Our mission is to bring together travellers (globals) and locals in order to help globals have the best experience by finding advice and recommendation from similar people.
