Rinolda Juodvirsyte

I'm Lithuanian who has been living in Norway, Sweden, Nepal, Austria and most of my adult life I've spent here in Iceland. Once I met some outdoor people who had so much fun on a glacier that I decided to become an outdoor guide myself, so for the last 6 years that's what my life is about : extreme outdoors including ice climbing, snowboarding, hiking, snowmobiling and boats. Iceland is just a perfect playground for that!

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Custom-made trips across Iceland. From relaxed family holiday to extreme outdoors adventure, Iceland has so much to offer and I am ready to design a perfect holiday for you."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I think I was born with this desire to explore more. When I was 16, I took my first solo trip to Estonia and I've got completely hooked. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"There is a little fjord town in Iceland, where an old man made an old church into a hostel. I've been staying there completely alone and going fishing with him every day. I think the beauty of the travels are these little cozy moments. "
