Since the age of 16 I have been traveling a lot and working abroad. Starting in beautiful Austria as an Au-pair on a farm with Icelandic horses which led to working as a riding instructor in an riding school for a summer or two.

Right around when I turned 21, I started working on cruise ships for a few years, sailing around the world. When landing in Iceland again I worked in hotels in the south of Iceland ending being the manager of one of the highland hotels for a few years more.

Now I am one of the owners of Activity Iceland. I am also a licensed fishing guide and it is one of my passions. Nothing beats the tranquility of casting into the river and perhaps getting a fish or two. Iceland still takes my breath away.

Harpa's Travel Expertise

I do specialize in custom made travel plans. It can be anything from a shared package to a high end luxury experience. My true passion is the Icelandic highlands, where Thórsmörk is my number 1 destination. I go there myself several times a year to drink in the energy of the glaciers around me and breathe the incredibly fresh air! But if you don't want to go into the highlands, I can also plan you an amazing trip on the regular, paved ring road.

Harpa's best travel experience

Two of my favorite experiences as a tourist has to be walking in Rome and seeing all the ruins of Egypt. To me, it is simply a breathtaking experience to walk underground into a tomb and seeing all the monuments our forefathers have built that have lasted through centuries.To touch something that was built 5000 years ago just amazes me.
