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."

Recent trip reviews for Michele
Michele is the BEST!! · Iceland - Sep 19 - Sep 27, 2021
Michele planned such a perfect trip around Iceland! He really helped us find the "off the beaten path" gems. He selected great activities and hotels and really listened to what we were looking for! We even have the good fortune of an incredible northern lights display. We especially enjoyed the time we spent in eastern and northern parts of Iceland; away from some of the "crowds" of the golden circle and Reykjavik. Iceland was our favorite trip we have taken! We highly recommend Michele!
Fantastic way to self-drive and see Iceland! · Iceland - Sep 25 - Oct 3, 2021
My husband and I felt very taken care of in planning ring road trip. Essentially Michele did everything for us, booked the car, hotels, created maps and driving routes, and stops for us to see. We are both busy professionals and the fact that we didn't really have to think about this trip until we landed in Iceland was absolutely perfect and we enjoyed exploring the itinerary on a day to day basis. The hotels were also really nice and comfortable. Thank you Michele!
A Phenomenal tour of a Phenomenal country! · Iceland - May 22 - May 30, 2021

He was extremely helpful in providing various trip options and helping us customize the trip to our liking.
Everyday was a highlight and memorable part of our trip. We especially loved Snaefellsnes, hiking up to Glymur... read more
Outstanding team · Iceland - Oct 23 - Nov 2, 2019
Michele and his team did a wonderful job. My expectations were high for this trip; and, my expectations were left in the dust for what my experiences actually were on this trip. The accommodations were top notch. The itinerary that was made for me, was spot on, perfect. Michele and his team were able to notify me immediately of an issue with one of the excursions I was going to take, avoiding me driving out of my way to find out it had been cancelled. The few questions I had, their response... read more
