I have always been interested in different languages, cultures and traveling within Iceland as well as to other countries. At the age of 16, I started working at a hotel and after that, there was no turning back. I have worked at a hotel, a small guesthouse, a domestic airline company, and a few travel agencies, so I have a wide range of experience.

I studied Japanese language and culture with English as a minor at the University of Iceland. I went to Tokyo for one semester as an exchange student and I can't wait for the day I get to visit Japan again.

I also have a diploma from the Iceland School of Tourism where I was granted a sponsorship to visit Lapland, the northernmost part of Finland, to get familiarized with the tourism industry there.

A few years ago I decided to travel on my own to India for a month. That experience changed my perspective on so many things and I would recommend to anyone to try traveling on their own at least once in their life!

Lára Ósk's Travel Expertise

I use most of my weekends and vacation days to travel in Iceland, which improves my expertise. In the summertime, I usually camp at tent sites and explore nature, and in the wintertime, I try out different hotels and restaurants in the countryside.

I have tried all kinds of experiences; snowmobiling on a glacier, driving ATV on a black beach, buggy riding in the highlands, exploring inside a volcano, snorkeling between tectonic plates and the list goes on!

I have traveled all over Iceland and I am amazed every time with how beautiful my country is.

Lára Ósk's best travel experience

A few years ago I got the chance to visit Greenland for 3 nights and it left me speechless. Nuuk is a beautiful town with its colorful buildings and rich history, but the highlight of my trip was going on a boat, sailing between the icebergs, and arriving at a secluded place where I stayed in a luxury tent. The fresh cold air, the wild nature, the northern lights dancing above me, and the sounds of the icebergs breaking in the ocean...it is a feeling that cannot be described!
