When I am not working as a tourist guide I give lectures to students at the Iceland School of Tourism, University of Iceland and Holar University.
I contribute articles and photographs to various printed and online publications.
A Recent Review of this guide
Stefan is an outstanding tour guide. Our family of six (four children ages 13, 12, 6, 5) had an AMAZING time in Iceland. We have Stefan to thank for that. His knowledge of the history of Iceland, the culture, timelines and events, geography...is incredible. He designed routes for us to see the classic Golden Circle and the South Coast as well as West Region. He gave us a lovely tour of Reykjavik and then took us to the Blue Lagoon on the way to the airport. No detail was left out. THANK YOU, STEFAN
