Sales Department Manager

Biography

I have always been obsessed with traveling, seeing new things and stay in different hotels. If you ask my mom she will tell you that this was a hassle! All I ever wanted was to go “somewhere” to stay in a hotel! This has not changed at all!  My biggest hobby is to travel, around Iceland but also abroad.

I was raised in Germany but always knew I would end up in Iceland. I moved to Iceland 2004 and started soon working in the travel industry. I am a licensed guide from the Icelandic guide school, but I actually prefer to be backstage deciding what great places people should visit. I went to Hólar university to study tourism and finished my B.A in Tourism Studies. I started working for GJ Travel 2006 and witnessed the industry in Iceland as well as the company grow rapidly. I appreciate that GJ Travel is a family company, so I always want to live up to the name of our founder and his family.

ICELANDIC FAVORITE

FAVORITE BEER

Anything light and bright but I really prefer white wine 😉

FAVORITE THING TO DO IN ICELAND

I love all the different baths in Iceland and the open-air swimming pools around the country. You could go around Iceland and soak every day in a new bath. The Blue Lagoon, the beer spa, Jarðböðin Nature baths, the Geo sea geothermal sea baths, the secret lagoon I could go on and on

FAVORITE PLACE IN ICELAND

Iceland has an amazing energy and there are so many special and unique places, I have a different favourite place every year. Today I want to pick Lake Mývatn and the nature baths.

FAVORITE ICELANDIC TRADITION

I like to say that Icelanders are the Italians of the north in regard to family. We love to get together, especially for food (and CAKE!!) Christmas might be the highlight of the year for that. And in Iceland we have thirteen Icelandic Yule lads (Not Santa Clause!) And then New Year’s Eve where Icelanders will go crazy over fireworks they buy to support the ICE-SAR Icelandic Search and rescue association.

FAVORITE ICELANDIC BAND

We have so many great artists and bands, now my favourite are probably Monsters of Man and Kaleo
