My thoughts about Reykjavík
Even though Reykjavík is not exactly the biggest city in the world, it has a lot of things to offer. The atmosphere in Reykjavík is quite relaxed, so it’s nice to take a stroll down to the harbour and have a lobster soup. And from there you can keep on walking and enjoy the city life. My favourite church in Reykjavík is Hallgrímskirkja because it has really interesting architecture and a great view over the whole city. From there you can go and visit Harpa – our Concert Hall, which is a really beautiful building and is quite fun to visit for a good concert.
Watch a really beautiful midnight sunset here in Iceland.
Explore the stunning nature.
Take a vacation into My life
My biggest passion is definitely taking on challenges out in nature, whether it’s skiing or climbing mountains. When I was 18 I had already been kicked out of school three times. People thought I wouldn’t have any future at all, but one day I climbed Iceland’s highest mountain and I just knew that this was something that I would like to do in the future—and basically I haven’t stopped since then.
My solo trip to the South Pole is definitely my biggest expedition so far, and it was a great experience!
