Bjorn G.

Reykjavik, Iceland

My name is Bjorn and I was born and raised in Iceland, and I know my country well by experience.

I have a passion for traveling and I use every chance I get to travel whether it's in Iceland or abroad.

I'm a friendly and outgoing person and I love meeting and talking to people. I live in Reykjavik with my family and I've lived in the Reykjavik area my whole life, which I love but I take every chance I get to travel to the countryside and enjoy the nature with my camera in hand. I am an amateur photographer and I don't think I could be luckier with a country to live in since everywhere you look is a photo waiting to be taking. It's a photographer's paradise.

Experiencing Iceland with a local guide truly is a great way to get the most out of your adventure. I drive a 33" Land Cruiser 150 (Prado), a well equipped vehicle and great for the Icelandic climate. Going with a professional driver who knows his country and conditions well is a good way to travel since weather conditions in Iceland in the winter time can be harsh and unpredictable. Iceland truly is an amazing and fascinating country with breathtaking scenery and untouched nature and I want you to enjoy it to the fullest and have a save and the most authentic experience as possible.

During my university studies I did an exchange year in Vienna, Austria and there I made a lot of friends from all over the world. I've been lucky enough to have some of them visit me here in Iceland and it was then when I discovered my passion for introducing Iceland to visitors.
It is a privilege for me to be an Iceland guide and it is very important to me to make your Iceland trip unique and unforgettable. I am flexible and I listen to your wishes and if you have any special interests or hobbies I will do anything I can to accommodate it and incorporate it to your tour.

I look forward to welcoming and showing you Iceland!

A Recent Review of this guide

In addition to this South Shore tour, we also did the Golden Circle tour with Bjorn. The two tours are highly complementary and a perfect package. The natural beauty of the country was simply dazzling and even the bad weather didn't dampen :) our enthusiasm. Bjorn provided an extra delightful dimension with his boundless knowledge of, and enthusiasm and pride in his native land. Add a great sense if humor and total flexibility on Bjorn's part and you have memories for life. Bjorn, we want Michael pics!!
