Lisa

Reykjavik, Iceland

Hallo! My name is Lisa and I welcome you to Iceland, the land of fire and ice, Northern lights, fantastic nature, fascinating culture and dazzling locals.

I would love to introduce you to Icelandic culture, way of life, traditions, culture and mythical nature.

It would be a pleasure for me to take you to some of the hidden pearls of our nature along with some of the "must see" places like the Golden Circle and Eyjafjallajökull volcano. My mission is to introduce you to the local culture of Iceland, its fantastic people and nature. I do the best one can to stay off beaten tracks, leading us to even more beautiful and interesting places than otherwise. I work closely with local people all around the country to be sure you will have the experience of a lifetime.

I am a professional folklorist and I love to tell stories and legends linked to the landscape so my customers will get to know the nature in a whole new way. Hope to see you in Iceland!

A Recent Review of this guide

Our family of six spent three days with Lisa. She was responsive and informative from our initial email conversation onward. She effortlessly balanced driving, timing, and storytelling, all the while optimizing our experiences to minimize our exposure to other tourists. We were all appreciative of her knowledge of Icelandic history and culture and left with a better understanding of Iceland and it's people.
