When I travel, it's important for me to have an authentic experience in order to enjoy the places I visit, especially in nature. When I plan trips for others too, I aim for this.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"I specialize in customized activities and holidays in general, in the Westfjords region and all across Iceland. "
How did you get involved in travel?
"After some years of traveling, living in different places and working in different fields, but often in the tourism industry, I settled down in Iceland mainly because of its nature and I'm happy to have ended up as a travel agent in the Westfjords."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"One summer evening I went for a short walk in a nice and solitary area I didn't know, not far out of Reykjavík. I eventually came back to the car three hours later, after wandering through a lava field and ending up on top of a volcano watching the midnight sun setting."
