Jean-Marc, your contact in Iceland
Hello I am Jean-Marc ! I am French, an Aikido and Qi gong teacher, and a Shiatsu practitioner. I live in Iceland as a photographer, guide, and founder of Alkemia, a local travel agency in Iceland. I always take the time for contemplation in my walks, to help meeting the elements, finding the source and in the end, oneself.
I work with Harpa Barkardottir, an Icelandic who is graduated in anthropology, she has got a guiding licence and has assisted travellers’ groups for 12 years with her sharp knowledge of geology. Harpa loves helping people reaching a relationship with the sacred dimension of nature. She always guides with sensitivity to the invisible world and a strong knowledge of the visible world.
We also work with Emmanuelle Bluman, a black belt in Karate graduated in art history, and Emma who is fascinated by travels and photography.
Let's go to Iceland !
The tourisme sector in Iceland has increased very fast, which requires hard work to preserve and protect Icelandic natural beauty. Iceland is worth visiting at any time of the year, depending on what you are expecting. The so-called "must see" are not always the best Icelandic sites.
Our best finds are kept secret, but if you choose to travel through Iceland with us, we will be more than happy to share them with you and take you to our favourite places.
Alkemia, your local travel agency in Iceland
Our travel agency is located in the region of Myvatn in North Iceland where we live all year round, in the fjord called Eyjafjördur close to Akureyri. We mainly organize trips around lake Myvatn and in Eyjafjördur because this region offers a large range of things to discover while remaining on a scale of short travels. But we also offer trips in the whole country.
