1. Tell us a bit about yourself and your role. 

My name is Inessa, and I manage Nine Worlds, an Icelandic luxury travel brand that brings our clients’ dream holidays to life. Daily, I ensure the efficiency of our operations in Iceland and put customer service at the forefront. My focus is meeting the needs of our discerning clients through the continuous development of original travel offerings.

In my free time, I love exploring Iceland’s rugged landscapes and hiking with my Border Collie dog. During cozy winters here, I love knitting Icelandic sweaters. These hobbies keep me connected to the surrounding environment, and sometimes, they are the source of inspiration for my work.

4. What makes Iceland and Greenland ideal destinations for luxury travel?


Iceland and Greenland offer our guests privacy and exclusivity, with untouched landscapes providing a perfect backdrop for experiential luxury travel. 

In each destination, travelers will discover unique experiences, such as bathing in a secluded hot spring, going on a helicopter glacier hike, or kayaking among icebergs. For luxury travelers looking for a mix of relaxation and adventure, Iceland and Greenland are the perfect choice. 

5. What do your clients typically look for in a luxury trip? 


Our guests appreciate individuality, exclusivity, and attention to detail. They are searching for an experience that mixes comfort with the thrill of discovering something extraordinary. 

Whether it's a helicopter tour over massive glaciers or a private dinner in a completely remote location, that's exactly what luxury means for our clients – a deeper connection to where they are.

6. What are some of your recommendations for must-see sights and must-do activities in Iceland? 

Iceland is a treasure trove of natural wonders. Key highlights include visiting The Blue Lagoon Retreat SPA, exploring the Golden Circle during quieter hours, and venturing into the untouched highlands. 

For those seeking adventure, snorkeling in the Silfra Fissure between two tectonic plates is a truly exceptional experience. Or they could take a private glacial lagoon boat tour to a secluded island and enjoy an intimate picnic overlooking the Vatnajökull glacier.
