  • Enjoying the midnight sun on top of Hverfjall by Lake Myvatn
  • Feeling the pulling power of the largest waterfall in Europe, Dettifoss
  • Enjoying the view of snowy tree-tops and mountains from the fantastic restaurant at Iso Syote after an adventurous excursion combining snowmobiling and husky sledging in the wilderness
  • Seeing the northern lights at Abisko and the Icehotel in Sweden

My Favourite Place

My favourite place is Lake Mývatn in Iceland where I grew up. It's a nature lover's paradise with grand mountains and craters around the lake itself, strange lava formations and incredible birdlife. The perfect place for hiking, cycling and enjoying the midnight sun.
