Thor Pedersen

I am a happy guy who loves to organize my own travels and I would want nothing more than to help you to have a great travel experience. Traveling has become a passion of mine and something I care a lot for. I hope through my insight, you are able to discover a passion for Norway, if you don't already have that passion.

How did you get involved in travel?

"I have always had a desire to travel and see the world but only in more recent years I was actually able to go on those trips I had long been wanting to go on. Now I wish to extend that passion for travel that I discovered to others."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"I will never forget the sights I saw in Tokyo when I went to Japan for the first time. From shrines in the city to Shibuya crossing at night, it remains my favorite travel memory. I have many plans to go back and see as much of Japan as I can, but nothing will beat my first time there."
