For me, travel can be a life-changing experience. Therefore an overall experience of Iceland is very important to be on top of the best trips one has done. Setting up an itinerary is an art and the tours are a story, it needs to be designed towards peoples needs and told the way people will listen and remember.

I'm adventurer and tourism entrepreneur, constantly trying to learn new views of life and challenge my self outside of the box.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Climbing, alpinist, hiking, camping, sightseeing, activities, private tours, luxury tours, mountaineering, ski touring, big mountain climbing, glamping

Areas, The Slovenian alps and Slovenia in general"

How did you get involved in travel?

""I have been involved with nature since a young age. Growing partly up on a sheep farm with my grandfather, I was able to experience the Icelandic wilderness at it's best learning important skills of how to go in nature. When I became more independent, I started doing my own small expeditions, hiking, camping and exploring the remote areas of Iceland.

Iceland hasn´t always been very known travel destinations, a lot to do with the small nation population and people just not knowing of it so tourism wasn´t the first on my list of things to do when I was younger. I didn't realize you actually could make it your main work and live off it.

There was a moment in my life where I got involved with tourism and started to study it. I really liked the life philosophy and the message it sent out. It felt really in line with what I wanted to do and I learned that you can actually play through life, showing people a unique nature and make a living of it. I came back home with very direct goals of making my lifestyle my "work".

Midgard adventure was founded in 2010. For me, it was a formula that should work in tourism and selling experience. If we invite you to join our fun, playful world with the nature we have, it should be reflecting in a great overall travel experience.

In 2017 I finally started to work towards an idea that I have had for few years. Setting up another tour operation in Slovenia. I´ve been very much attracted to Slovenia for few years and it´s one of my favorite place in Europe. It´s a place where culture, mountains, people, and history comes together and creates a very interesting vibe. It is very small, so it makes all experiences very approachable and compact. "


Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

""I think my 36-day expedition to Patagonia has to be one there on the list. This is where I really got in touch with nature. I spend 36 days in the wilderness of Andes. We spent days climbing, traversing a glacier, camping out and learning again on the simplicity of life. After a successful expedition, I was really sure about our philosophy at Midgard adventure and that travel can actually change a life.""
