Now I live with my family in Reykjavik capital.
I've worked in the golf industry for the past 17 years as a greenkeeper. For the past 7 years I worked as a course manager for the largest golf club in Iceland, the Reykjavík golf club which is the second largest golf club in Europe with just under 3000 members.
I have been hunting grouses, geese, ducks, puffins and blackbirds all over Iceland since I was a teenager. I have hiked many mountains and camped all around. I love being in the Icelandic nature and breath the fresh air. So, my interests are mostly in outdoor activities, that's why I was so excited when I decided that now I wanted to change my path and start working in the tourist business in Iceland.
I would like to give you a premium experience touring in Iceland. I want the experience to be a light and fun way of exploring the Icelandic nature and all that it has to offer. Mountains, volcanos, glaciers, geysers, lagoons, northern lights, culture and so much more. I know many extraordinary places, out of the typical tourist loops that I am eager to show you!
I will have a wide range of cars available, all from mini buses to super jeeps. I will also offer you a taste of Icelandic culture on the road such as Brennivín (Black death), hákarl (shark), harðfisk (dried fish) and such.
I am a likeable guy and my goal is to make sure that you have the best and the most fun time in Iceland. I want you to feel like you are seeing Iceland with a friend rather than a guide. I'm very flexible about the itinerary, if the weather changes or if you change your mind about what you want to see and/or have a special request.
A Recent Review of this guide
Highly recommend Birkir and the Golden Circle excursion. The sites are fascinating and a once in a lifetime experience. Even though the weather was challenging, Birkir made it all work. He has a newer van that's in excellent condition. We very much enjoyed the day.
