I grew up in the city but spent my summers on a farm on the south coast of Iceland, and from there, my love of my country began. There is nothing like horse riding through pristine, untouched nature, far from roads or vehicles. Then, as soon I was legal to drive, I took my rusty old car and started exploring other places on my own. Since then my love of traveling has only grown.

In 2006 I decided to move to Italy and further my studies. Spending a few years living and studying in Milan was an amazing experience, but the distance made my heart grow even fonder of Iceland, so I decided to return once I graduated as a designer.

When I'm not traveling in Iceland, I love to hit the road and drive around different countries. One of my most memorable experiences abroad was driving through Utah's national parks in North America with my friends.

Auður Elísabet's best travel experience

The great thing about visiting Iceland is that travel in different seasons creates the opportunity for completely different experiences.

For example, exploring the Westfjords of Iceland in the summertime is one of my favorite experiences. The summer season offers incredible views, exciting driving routes, seeing puffins in the Látrabjarg bird cliff and soaking in natural hot springs which you will find in every other fjord. You can also have the greatest seafood Viking experience, see seals and whales and relax in the remote Krossneslaug swimming pool where you feel like you are at the end of the world.

On the other hand, in the wintertime, I love traveling along the south coast. Seeing the incredible waterfalls covered in ice, walking on glaciers, driving ATVs on black sand beaches and exploring into magnificent ice caves. Then driving back to your hotel where you can warm up by the fire, having good food and relaxing after an exciting day.
