Content Management / Local Expert
Sam is a London born writer/poet, ruled by an insane wanderlust and a passion for walking barefoot in the grass. Though he grew up in South London he has made his home in various locations around the UK but has now made his way to Iceland to start a whole new chapter. His greatest weakness' include: his inability to resist a great pun and a good cup of tea. You will often find him walking about the streets of Reykjavik looking for poetical inspiration in the street art and history of the capital or just as likely looking for some crazy new adventure to get mixed up in. He is the guy to ask for the best sights and experiences found off the beaten path.
Social Media Marketing / Local Expert
Viktoria has recently been travelling around Europe, most of the time with only a single backpack and a tent. Hiking on Iceland's less known paths and volunteering on farms have led her to decide to settle down in the country. Her strong traveller mindset is coupled with a wide range of knowledge of locals and bloggers. She is a one stop shop for all the best information about the Icelandic wilderness, she knows a myriad of hidden treasures and will surely surprise you with some of her lesser-known secrets.
