Our True Passion

Svarmi grew from a hobby to a company specializing in mapping with drones.

Simply put: We do this because we enjoy it.

Our strength is finding creative methods for challenging projects requiring drones. Let’s work together to find a solution.

Since 2013

Experienced and knowledgeable

Svarmi was founded in 2013 by two mechanical engineers with a shared interest in flying. Both founders had years of experience designing and building drones and RC model planes before they took the obvious step to start a company around their passion.


Usage of drones has expanded since then, and the focus of the company has shifted from selling custom built drones to data services. Svarmi is now a leading expert in Iceland in remote sensing data for scientific and industrial purposes.
