Iceland is on everyone‘s bucket list, but just because it‘s an easy country to visit it doesn’t mean that you can guarantee an amazing holiday by simply jumping on a plane and booking a hotel. With such a diverse range of things to do and experience, you need the help of an experienced planner.
I can expertly plan your holiday to Iceland not just because I‘m a local and I know the country like the back of my hand – but, because being a local that knows everyone worth knowing, I can take my clients to places that no guide book or website will ever show you.
Intrigued? Let me give you an example…
Some people ask me if I can plan a trip to visit shark hunters in Snæfellsnes. This isn’t something many people know about or would feel comfortable booking directly themselves. The old farmers use ancient methods passed down through generations to preserve the shark meat. When you meet these extraordinary people, you not only get to listen to their amazing stories but your create memories of a lifetime. Through my unique overview of both the country and the people that make up its rich and vibrant culture, you’re guaranteed to discover many hidden gems that you didn’t even know existed.
You want an example of another Icelandic secret?
I bet you didn’t know Iceland is famed for some really great ales. I can take you to a father and son brewing team in the North of the country who decided to one day start creating their own beers in the middle of nowhere. Following an accident at work, the father could no longer continue working as a fisherman so decided to follow his passion and now their business has grown from strength to strength. In fact their ales are so popular they can´t even fulfill orders within the Icelandic market and have vowed to not distribute outside of the country. So if you fancy sampling the best in Icelandic beer – you‘ll need me to take you there!
These are just two examples of some hidden gems Iceland has to offer that you won‘t be able to find yourself. There are of course plenty of other places and experiences; from breathtaking scenery not accessible via normal roads to fun days out for the most adventurous among you.
I can work around you and your interests, your budget and your capabilities, to ensure that your holiday of a lifetime in Iceland will really be one filled with plenty of happy memories. And hidden gems!
