Iceland – a journey through time

Experience Iceland's history in Ísafjörður

In 2013 I changed my Ísafjörður Walk guided tour into an adventure walk, which involves me donning the clothes of a 19th Century fish worker and describing the lives of people in the newly-created commercial centre of Ísafjörður. In addition, I give information about the place, its history and culture, and tell tales and legends from ancient and modern times.

Through my research I gathered  a lot of information, so I decided to write an Ísafjörður guidebook. The book is ideal for independent-spirited travellers who like to "do" places on their own. You might also like to take a copy of the book home as a reminder of our small town home and use it to visit us again, in your mind's eye.

The plan is to also release the book as an audiobook (as a phone app), and for both to be available digitally.

Price: 1.500 ISK 

You can order the book as soon as it comes out in March, right here on my website.


To make a booking, please contact me. I will answer you quickly.
