Each time I go to a new place, I learn something new about myself or make great personal development. When I go to a new destination I am always looking to push my boundaries to try something new and get myself out of my comfort zone. These trips are not necessarily only vacation, however, they often allow me to reflect on my beliefs, values, and realign my goals as well as aspirations.
You would be surprised how much you can learn about yourself while being merely on the brink of your comfort zone, imagine how it is when you're completely submerged in the deep end.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Everything Iceland. We are a travel agency made of passionate Iceland specialists who make tailor-made and wellness holidays. We offer personal service and expert advice on what to do and where to go in Iceland. We make an effort to offer you the best price available for the itineraries we make. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"It feels almost as if I was born and raised by travel. For as long as I have remembered I have gone fly fishing with my dad in the north of Iceland. Every time we go fishing it's an incredible journey as we often have to hike to the remote ares in order to fish. It has given me great experience of the land and it's what drives me back to it. Iceland has so much natural beauty to offer that any time I get the chance I have encouraged people to come experience it for themselves. I have also been fortunate to get to travel to many amazing places like South Africa, Hawaii (USA), Cuba, and Tanzania, which made me want to share what my home country has to offer like the places that hosted me. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"When I was in Arusha, Tanzania my friends and I were gutted by the fact that the itinerary created for us did not include seeing Kilimanjaro or "Kili", as it's known by the locals. Like any other adventurous college students we were persistent in finding ways on how to get ourselves to Kili without having to break the bank that we didn't have. Luckily, we were able to track down a middle-aged local who owned a Dala Dala. If you don't know what a Dala Dala is then I recommend you Google Image search it because it's unlike any other. So, my friends and I crammed ourselves into the Dala Dala and drove for 2 hours to the basecamp of Kilimanjaro. We got to experience the incredible difference in climate as we drove up to the mountain and hiked down to an incredible waterfall in the national park. It was an unexpected highlight to our already amazing trip that consisted of going to the Ngorongoro Crater and many other amazing places. "
