An enthusiastic Scandiphile and questionable Swedish speaker, Abel is an aspiring Iceland resident who is delighted to have joined the Aurora Zone’s team. Between graduating with a BA in English Literature and a two-year stint as a Covid tester, she has been lucky enough to visit Iceland four times. Need advice on the best place to grab a snack before a bus tour? Drop her a line.
Abel first fell in love with Reykjavik during a bus-trip-packed winter break in 2018. Unable to stay away, she undertook a three-week hitchhiking trip two years later, exploring Iceland from North to South and East to West(fjords) Despite numerous misadventures, this trip allowed her to take in the whole of the ring road, travelling from the South Shore to the rugged cliffs of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula and Akureyri. Having experienced several of the tours offered by the Aurora Zone including the Golden Circle, Snaefellsnes Peninsula day trip and several Northern Lights bus tours, she would happily advise on any of them.
- Taking candid photos of her very relaxed mum in the Sky Lagoon.
- Eating rotting shark in the shark museum on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula.
- Finding a two course meal for under £20 in Reykjavik (it is possible!)
- Snorkelling between two tectonic plates in Thingvellir National Park.
- Witnessing the astonishing majesty of the black beaches at Vik.
