Kristján Jóhann Kristjánsson

Online Marketing and System Administration

Kristján might look like a kid but he certainly has wide experience working with a number of good and not-so-good computer systems and so has become adept at getting the most out of them, which in turn helps other users optimize their time. Krissi, to use his nickname, has his creative side: he plays guitar, likes to write and speaks fluent Spanish after spending 15 years in Barcelona. Krissi is a school of life sort of bloke who simply can´t bear to hear the defeatist retort of “that can´t be done”.

Marina Petrova

Project Manager Incentives

Marina’s always looking for herself and has been looking all over the globe for the past years. In 2006, she’d finally found herself enough to settle down in Iceland, where she got lost again – this time in a good way. Marina’s a trained teacher and speaks both French and Icelandic on top of her native Russian. She’s also a certified guide. Her tours are most often in Russian, but as she’s discovered it’s quite handy to be able to switch between a language or three when out on the road. She loves it when Iceland leaves people breathless (both literally and figuratively). After five years in Iceland, she finally accepted flatbread with smoked lamb as food and she openly admits to trying to convert visitors to flatbread lovers in record time.

Sesselja Dagbjört Gunnarsdóttir

Project Manager Incentives

City girl Sesselja graduated with a degree in business and admits to being a perfectionist. She’s extremely enthusiastic about handball, food (especially ice cream), and travel, naturally. She’s spent time in both Denmark and Spain, but these nations are vastly different when it comes to their outlook on life, so Sesselja internalized the best of both worlds. She’s counted among the sharpest tools in the shed and remembers everything. Especially the unimportant things.

Having travelled a lot throughout the years, and worked as a volunteer in India and Palestine, Sigríður has gained a deeper understanding of different cultures and customs.

Born in the Royal Kingdom of Denmark, Skúli has over the years lived in a number of European countries and speaks several languages fluently. Creative, positive and tech-savvy, he´s certainly not your run-of-the mill type. Skuli´s strong creative streak is revealed in his passion for photography and music.

Tinna Lárusdóttir

Project Manager Incentives

Tinna holds a master’s degree in culture communication and globalization (phew) and is the reigning Icelandic marathon champion, thank you very much. She’s a country girl at heart but has studied the habits of city folk rather intimately over the years after spending time in Spain and in New York, as well as in Denmark (obviously). She holds a BA degree in Spanish and translation studies on top of her master’s degree and also graduated with distinction from the school of life after touring Asia and Africa.

tinnal@icelandtravel.is

Tinna Ýrr Arnardóttir

Senior Project Manager Conferences

With years of experience working for Iceland Travel, Tinna has been a member of the conference team since 2005. Prior to that she made sure everything added up in the Accounts Department and always had an eye for the smallest of details, a quality that now stands her in good stead when she plans and organizes conferences of all sizes. Her reputation as an expert shopper precedes her and if anyone is looking for an expert shopping guide while travelling in Iceland, then Tinna is the perfect choice.

Þorbjörg Friðriksdóttir

Senior Project Manager Conferences

Tobba, as she´s called, has a BSc degree in Tourism and further diplomas in Project Management and Sales- and Marketing. In addition, she studied Folklore as she is fascinated by the commonly held belief in Iceland that elves and trolls live amongst us. On top of all this Tobba has worked in the MICE section since 2006, organizing various meetings, programmes for incentive groups, conferences and events. Always smiling, Tobba grabs every opportunity to hike or go horseback riding. Having her roots in Skagafjordur, a northern district famed for horse breeding, very likely explains her passion for horses. Maybe you should ask her to arrange a visit there.
