I am originally from Germany and have a Master degree in International Business. I first came to Iceland for an internship in 2007 and immediately felt home on this small island in the North Atlantic.
I work for Iceland Unlimited since 2012 and simply love to prepare unforgettable and unique trips for my clients. I traveled already all over the country and my favorite region in Iceland is Snaefellsnes.
I also have a good knowledge about Greenland. It is very popular among our guests to add some extra days in order to explore Greenland as well.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"I have very detailed knowledge about all areas in Iceland. I organized already numberless customized tours all around Iceland.

How did you get involved in travel?
"When I permanently moved to Iceland in 2012, I started to work for Iceland Unlimited travel service. For me it is a privilege to sell what I love. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"As a former whale watching guide I love to go on whale watching tours all around the country. I will never forget my first orca watching tour in Grundarfjörður in the West of Iceland. When we arrived in town, we saw the orcas already from the harbor and I was almost freaking out. The boat only went for 200 meters and then we spend a full hour surrounded my approximately 30 to 50 orcas. It was sometimes difficult to decide on which side of the boat to go since the whales were all around."
