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."

If you want to see Iceland's top natural highlights, a self-drive tour is by far the most popular option. Travel at your own pace with plenty of changes to head off the main road in search of your own adventures.

This epic 12-day road trip is a perfect way to absorb Iceland as you traverse all four corners of the country. You'll visit popular spots along the famous 828-mile (1,332 km) Ring Road, while also having the opportunity to escape the crowds as you detour through the Westfjords with some of Iceland's most dramatic landscapes (great for mountain biking and kayaking). The self-drive loop also includes stops in Iceland's two biggest cities, and numerous natural sites like volcanoes, waterfalls, lava fields, black sand beaches, glaciers, and blockbuster attractions in the Golden Circle.
