Ymir and Hebba are exactly the kinds of people you want to connect with when visiting Iceland. Knowledgeable, passionate, charming and generous in sharing all those things, time spent with them is time well spent. Can’t wait to return.

Ymir gives you a very personal and caring view of his Iceland. Delicious food and drinks and very relaxing swimming in a hot spring pool. Lots of other things as well but that will be a surprise for you.
