I love Iceland! I love the people, the scenery and the culture. After living in Iceland and going on many adventures, I have the knowledge and experience to work with travellers to plan a trip that not only has that WOW factor but becomes something to talk about in years to come.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"All of Iceland, self drive tours and guided trips.
Having lived in the Westfjords and travelled within Iceland myself I have knowledge and experience of some of the best spots to visit, both the well known tourist destinations and the more 'off the beaten track' areas too. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"I am an adventurer, it is in my blood. I began traveling as soon as I was old enough to head out into the world on my own. I lived and worked in many places from the small islands of the Caribbean to the snowy mountains in Northern Sweden. After travelling to New Zealand and Australia I settled in the Westfjords of Iceland with my family. Now I work for 'Iceland Offbeat' planning amazing trips for people around this wonderful island. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

Nightmare I hear you say! Not at all!!

We (My teething 9 month old and I) sat awaiting rescue on the mountainside for two hours. We watched the sea birds and ate blueberries off the bushes that grew as far as the eye could see. It was one of the most relaxing and uplifting moments of my life. "

10 Days in Iceland - 5 Unique Itinerary Ideas

Ten days in Iceland allows you a good amount of time to explore three areas. Visit the popular Golden Circle and South Coast, coupled with lesser-known destinations like the volcanic Snaefellsnes Peninsula or the animated Westman Islands. If you prefer to escape the crowded south, consider summertime itineraries to the West, North, and Westfjords for off-the-beaten-path discoveries, and active travelers can incorporate the trails of Thorsmork or the Laugavegur Trek as an accompaniment.

Guide to Hornstrandir Nature Preserve - Remote Wilderness in Northwest Iceland

The Hornstrandir Nature Reserve is a remote wilderness in the northwest claw of Iceland’s West Fjords. A wild gem of green slopes, snow-capped glacier peninsulas, and slate-blue bays, Hornstrandir is largely uninhabited and accessible only in during summer by daily ferry. It’s precisely these features that make it one of the best-preserved parts of Iceland--nothing for miles except green valleys, tufts of dandelions and Angelica, and pebbled shores. If you’re lucky, you may just spot a flying goose or an Arctic fox.
