I grew up in the small town of Akureyri in north Iceland but spent my summers wandering around Iceland with my family. They were avid travelers and adventure seekers who loved nature and the Icelandic highlands. As a teenager, I moved to Reykjavík where I've lived and worked ever since. I worked in the hospitality industry for many years as a teen and young adult. I enjoy working with people and having a hand in creating memorable experiences, so this area of work is perfectly suited for my personality.

Exploring the world is one of my great passions, so in 2007 I took a break from Iceland and backpacked solo around the world. My experiences on the road sparked my interest in tourism and once returned home I was inspired to study tourism at the University of Iceland from where I graduated with a BSc in tourism studies in 2015.

I started working in travel during my studies and ever since I graduated I've specialized in self-drive tours in Iceland, private tours and luxury holidays in both Iceland and Greenland. When I'm not at work love to spend time outdoors, hiking or trying new activities.

Unnur Silfá's best travel experience

When I travel I love to challenge myself and try something new. Iceland offers endless opportunities when it comes to exploring and enjoying fun activities, and I like to try everything at least once.

Some of my favorite travel experiences in Iceland have been ice climbing on the Sólheimajökull glacier, white river rafting in the glacial rivers of North Iceland, snowmobiling on the Troll peninsula and hiking the beautiful mountains of the Westfjords.
