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. "

Magical Driving Holiday in Iceland
Sep 7 - Sep 17, 2022
We had an absolutely magical 10 days in Iceland. The itinerary developed for us was perfect, taking into consideration our preferences. We particularly enjoyed the inclusion of Hornstrandir, the western fjords and Husafell. The accommodations selected for us were perfect and it is unlikely we could have found them on our own. Loved our stay at the Lysuholl Farm and Skalholt. Rinolda was excellent. So responsive, quick to understand our needs and to develop a brilliant itinerary. The detailed... read more
Fantastic Iceland trip
Aug 20 - Aug 27, 2022
We had an amazing trip to Iceland. Rinolda, our KimKim specialist was super helpful and responsive, and created a plan that was perfect for us, even though we started planning really late.
Everything worked perfectly, the hotels were very good, and the whole process was very simple and straight forward. Best of all, we got to Iceland, got in the car, hooked up our phone - and off we went.
Rinolda sent us to some amazing spots and incorporated our interests into the plan perfectly.
Thank you Kimkim and Rinolda!
An enjoyable trip of a beautiful country.
Aug 25 - Sep 6, 2022
Rinolda knows her home country well. We enjoyed the driving route that she created for us, and the hotels she selected on our behalf were nice. Restaurant recommendations she made were helpful.
I would have preferred separate bookings for each couple traveling together, rather than the lead traveler having all bookings in his name.
When creating a travel itinerary, I would recommend that she include the tour providers name, phone number, and time and location for meeting with the... read more
Thank you for your feedback, I will definitely try to improve in the future. And I am happy to hear you had a great time!
2022 Iceland Trip
Aug 25 - Sep 6, 2022
Rinolda did an excellent job working with the four of us--two couples with similar, but also different interests in what we wanted to see in Iceland. Beth and I thought that Rinolda did a great job communicating with us, turning around updated itineraries and, importantly, establishing a reasonable schedule of travel, sights and layovers. All accommodations were high caliber, and connections with flights, transfers, hotels/guesthouses, rental car went off without a hitch. Quick handling of... read more

Two weeks in Iceland and it was an incredible journey! Our agent, Rinolda created a fantastic trip plan for us. We had one phone call with her and she understood everything we wanted for our travel. All the arrangements were great! The driving routes were well planned with numerous site seeing suggestions. We had no problems with hotel reservations and they were all very nice!

Iceland in 11 days was magnificent!

Iceland in 11 days was magnificent!
Too bad we couldn't stay longer. Rinolda helped us well with planning our entire trip. We were pretty last minute (booked 1 month before departure) and she managed to book everything we needed. I started doing it on my own, because that's what I usually do, but this time I didn't have the time to do that. We loved the country! The only minor part was that we absolutely wanted to see and do everything, but that's just not possible in 11 days. So we did... read more

Thanks Rinolda, for a trip of a lifetime! We appreciated all your expertise and recommendations..Helping us change our itinerary to make whale watching possible on a day with good weather and meeting you during our trip were such thoughtful additions! Every activity was well suited to our interests and the variety was perfect!
The only improvements might have been larger showers in the rooms and a bit larger car for the second half of the trip...the car you reserved for us was very tight... read more
Thanks Elizabeth! I'm happy you enjoyed the trip. I really appreciate your feedback since it helps me grow!
Deep into Iceland with KimKim: an extraordinary jam-packed hiking trip of a changing landscape.
Jul 16 - Jul 26, 2022
We are an adventurous family. My wife and I have been hiking over 50 years and we still work together so time away still requires packed vacations within a 2 week time frame.

We hit the “Golden Circle and nearby iconic activities and in 5 days we packed in spelunking, white-water rafting, the Blue Lagoon, kayaking and hiking up Glymur falls, snowmobiles on glaciers and the essential Thingvellir, Gullfoss, Geysir and Reykavik.... read more

Jul 2 - Jul 10, 2022
We are a busy family, and did not have much time to do our own research on what to do in Iceland. Rinolda was just what we needed for a travel specialist! She took our requests and built a great itinerary for us. The program included not only the must sees, but also a number of suggestions in case we have extra time. She went over the itinerary with us before the trip in great detail and made any necessary changes based on our requests. She also booked all the hotels and hard to get tickets... read more

Iceland on the go!
Apr 16 - Apr 24, 2022
Our trip to Iceland was nonstop fun & adventure! From the moment we stepped off the plane till the moment we departed our kimkim guide Rinolda had us covered. Day 1 we started off with a luxurious visit to The Blue Lagoon and a walking food tour in Reykjavik with our awesome guide Ben! After stuffing our faces we did some light shopping and headed north for the 1st hotel. Day 2 was a sightseeing / hiking while driving kind of day. We stopped for lunch in downtown Akureyri and visited their... read more
