Lisbet Grönvaldt

Born and raised in Akureyri in North Iceland and grew up exploring all that Iceland has to offer. I love road trips because it changes your travels from being about the destination to being about the whole journey. You never know what you might see along the way.

People travel to Iceland for different reasons and helping them create an experience that reflects their desires is important to me, whether it is for waterfalls, hotsprings or the elves!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Self-drive trips all over Iceland with a mix of adventure and relaxation, off the beaten track as well as frequently traveled routes, because sometimes places are popular for a good reason. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"Since I was a kid I have been traveling around Iceland with my family. When I was seventeen I was fed up with camping every weekend during the summer and decided to move to The Bahamas! After that there was no stopping me, I had found my passion for travel. Since then I have traveled to 45 countries and lived in another five. Going to a new county and immersing yourself into the culture and customs is life changing.

During my international travels my love for my own country grew strong. For me there is nothing better than to get in a car and drive through this beautiful country to a remote hotspring and just sit there for hours in the peace and quiet. That is what I want travelers to experience in Iceland."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Being able to fly over Holuhraun volcanic eruption in 2015 and then taking a helicopter to Fagradalsfjall volcano in 2021 are experiences I will never forget! "

Iceland Escape
Iceland Off The Beaten Path: West and North Escape - 10 Days

This 10-day driving itinerary is great for the summer when the crowds of the south coast and golden circle area are at their peak and accommodation can be hard to find. Instead, escape to the more remote areas of the country to experience some of the best that Iceland has to offer, with few other people to share it with.

Godafoss Waterfall in Northern Iceland
Iceland Relaxed Ring Road Adventure - 10 Days

With 10 days on the road, you can discover a variety of regions and landscapes as you loop around Iceland's famous Route 1 (Ring Road). This moderately paced self-drive itinerary will take you to the best spots along the 828-mile (1,332 km) route with stops in its two biggest cities, as well as volcanoes, waterfalls, lava fields, black sand beaches, small fishing towns, and massive glaciers, as well as major attractions in the Golden Circle. This is going to be one gorgeous ride!

Hverfjall Crater rises in the distance of the Dimmuborgir lava fields
5-Day Tour of the North: Akureyri, Lake Myvatn, Waterfalls, and Geothermal Hotspots

For a unique Iceland experience, avoid the crowds of the south completely. This trip has it all: volcanoes, waterfalls, hot springs, nature baths, whale watching, fjords and more. Below are 2 great ways to experience the north: all the highlights with only a fraction of the people. You can maximize your time by taking a domestic flight over the beautiful highlands of the interior to Akureyri, or you can drive one way and fly from Akureyri back to Reykjavik.

Favorite experiences

Dog Sledding near Akureyri

Northern Iceland is one of the best places to enjoy a thrilling and scenic experience common in the Nordic countries: dogsledding. With a pack of eight or so loyal pups leading the way, you'll sled through the idyllic countryside between Akureyri and Lake Mývatn. This route stretches about 6...

Ásbyrgi Canyon in Northern Iceland

The Ásbyrgi Canyon, a glacial canyon formed after the last Ice Age, is about a 1-hour drive from the Northern Iceland town of Húsavík. This massive landmark sits along Route 85, curving into a U-shape for about 2 miles (3.5 km) from north to south. At the base of the canyon is a forested valley...

Jeep Tour of Askja Northern Highlands

Deep in Iceland's Northern Highlands is the Askja area, where Mount Herðubreið, a majestic table mountain of a truly peculiar shape, acts as the gateway to the wild region. The peak's dark silhouette is unmistakable, even from very far away. Still, the area's most precious gem is Askja itself,...

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon & Diamond Beach

You'll find the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon between the towns of Hof and Höfn on the country's famed South Coast. Here you'll have the chance to see one of the unique sights in Iceland: icebergs floating out to sea, resting and shimmering upon a black-sand beach. Once you reach the lagoon, you can...

The overall experience was good but I would only recommend that Lisbet could have kept in touch with us while we were in Iceland. Iceland weather is very unpredictable and we were cautioned to not drive if there were high wind gusts - which was the case on our Day 2 and we were left a bit unsure of the trip. Another point we felt has scope of improvement - was the hotel at Hella. We were literally the only family in the whole hotel.

Lisbet did an incredible job planning our twelve day trip to Iceland. She really listened to our needs and gave us a very structured list that made planning the trip easy to follow. Not only that, she was very responsive to any messages we sent regarding changes to our itinerary or any other questions we may have had. In fact, one day an excursion we had planned was canceled due to the weather and she contacted us before we had a chance to reach out to her to reschedule at a different location. There is so much to see and do in Iceland (and the language is so difficult) that it was a huge relief to have someone who lives in and knows the country plan our stops and ensure that our trip stayed on a realistic schedule. We loved our horseback riding trip at Hellasport. I have every reason to believe those horses are very humanely kept. Vok Baths, the Secret Lagoon, and Sky Lagoon were our favorites. Blue Lagoon is a must stop, but the other three places were more intimate. I wish we would have had time to fit in a dog sledding excursion, perhaps another time. Our favorite hotels were Hotel Geysir in the Golden Circle and Hotel Laxa at Lake Myrvatn. Hotel Laxa’s staff were so warm and welcoming, and they’re manager, Fion, has created and nurtured a fun, friendly, very comfortable environment. Be wary of the IcelandAir/Berjaya hotels. Evidently, they behave been purchased by another company and are planning to renovate, but some of the rooms look like they haven’t been renovated since the 90s. It’s also a more family friendly chain, which isn’t the environment one would hope for when celebrating a wedding anniversary. However, some places are so remote that they were likely the best options. All in all, I’m very grateful to Lisbet and kimkim for taking the stress out of a fabulous vacation.

Iceland is so breathtakingly beautiful and unique; we were lucky to have your experience and guidance to help us enjoy it! We’re both well-travelled but had never used a service like Kim Kim’s until now and we know that without your expert guidance, planning and speedy assistance, we wouldn’t have gotten as much out of Iceland had we planned the trip on our own. Your help in planning the days so we got the most out of it was excellent. Every day was packed with lots of activities and options yet felt nicely balanced. You also adapted quickly when we asked for adjustments or when we felt like we needed a break.

Asking us to pick the most memorable spots is probably like asking someone to pick a favourite child, but off the top of our heads our favourites were: Studlagil Hike, Reykladur Hike + warm river, glacier kayaking, glacier hiking, and Myvatn Nature Baths. The driving was also amazing, but like I say too many places to list!
