What happens when an 18 year old Swedish woman leaves her home to travel the world, wander through the countries and finally land on a small island in the North Sea? She is so enchanted by the wild nature, the horses and the friendly people that she simply stays!

First, Petra spent her semester breaks in Iceland, helped with the training of horses, learned Icelandic, accompanied tourists on highland tours and got a bus driver's license. After studying business and marketing, she attended the Icelandic school for horse training and breeding and worked as a horse trainer in Iceland and Germany. In addition, she completed training in Sensory Motor Body therapy according to Dr. Pohl from Germany.

Soon she took over the organization and management of these highland tours and also worked in a travel agency planning tours. With a great passion for the unique natural beauty of Iceland and for conveying this to visitors, it was only logical that she completed training as a travel guide and was able to work as a driver guide and finally founded her own travel company in 2009.

Petra offers visitors the special advantage of professionally organised, personal exploration of Iceland whether on horseback, on foot or by a minibus which can transport small groups of up to 19 people. It is possible to plan day trips and tours which suit your requirements, interests and level of fitness allowing longer and shorter hikes and excursions in the amazing Icelandic countryside. She can arrange theme tours, such as hiking and meditating in the Icelandic nature, tours to horse tournaments, stud farm visits or travel for groups interested in specialized areas such as Icelandic farming.

Petra is commited to ensuring these trips are professionally planned and organized. It is her great pleasure to show foreign visitors the variety of Iceland's unique natural landscape especially less visited areas away from the normal Ring Road tours. She loves to provide clients with interesting information about the country, people and Icelandic legends.

If you want to experience Iceland in an individual and professional way, Petra is the right person to guide you.
