Katy, Iceland Senior Specialist
Growing up, Katy was in awe of her father's adventures around the globe, so after graduating in journalism from Cardiff University, she spent the next few years working abroad and travelling the world in between.
After spending a number of years covering the Indian Subcontinent at Audley, Katy leapt at the chance to become part of the Iceland team; a country that she had previously been captivated by following her first visit in 2014. At first it was the spectacular glacial landscapes and renowned geothermal activity that primarily appealed to Katy but following her most recent visit, she has become further intrigued by the variety of birdlife, cuisine and Icelandic folklore and culture.
Katy takes great pride in organising tailor-made itineraries to this fascinatingly unique country, and during her spare time she enjoys teaching yoga and visiting her family in Devon.

I'll never forget when…
We joined a whale watching and sea angling experience in Eyjafjörður, the longest fjord in central north Iceland on a wonderfully sunny day and soon after boarding, our guide was pointing out humpback whales. With the engine switched off we could hear the whales shooting air and water through their blowholes as we watched the flukes of others descend back under. In between sightings, we snacked on kleinur (Icelandic doughnuts), and tried some sea angling, and despite being a complete novice, I didn’t wait long for my first catch. All this was set against a backdrop of snow-capped peaks, making it an unforgettable day.
