Barry Ward

Tour Designer / Account Manager

Barry lived all his life in Scotland until he got the chance to move to Iceland and join Icelandic Mountain Guides in 2016. Barry loves to travel and his bucket list is extensive; he would dearly love to travel around south east Asia. He finds it very difficult to choose a favourite place in Iceland as it has so many wonderful treasures but Þórsmörk, Snæfellsnes, Akureyri, Goðafoss, Námaskarð and Mývatn are in his top ten. In his home country he worked in a lot of sales and marketing positions, and now he is an account manager and tour designer for a us, a job which suits him well since he loves to talk and to introduce Iceland to new visitors.

Outside of work and travel, Barry is also very interested in theatre; he was involved in the scene in Scotland for many years and recently joined a local theatre company, which is quite the challenge, seeing as all the plays are in Icelandic. He says it’s helping him to work on his fluency!
