I was born and raised in Iceland. I'm a certified guide with a bus drivers licence and specialize in educational tours. I will always treat you as my guest, not like tourists! I love to plan a custom made tour, just for you. Tell me what you are interested in and we will explore just that. :) I am a fun loving, caring and organized person who takes great pleasure in getting to know new people and make sure their trip in Iceland is an unforgettable one. I offer all kinds of tours but I specialize in educational tours and have good knowledge both in the natural environment and history of Iceland. My speciality is Golden Circle with a Local, a private day tour. For this tour please note that the guests must have their own vehicle and meet me in the Golden Circle area. I am a certified Tour Guide, and run Understand Iceland, a fully licensed tour operator: www.understandiceland.is
