Hi, my name is Thor, and I will guide you on an unforgettable trip.

I am a 5 star rated guide on Trip Advisor and have been leading tours of my native Iceland for over 5 years.

I operate northern lights forecast every day and advise many tour operators concerning the northern lights.

I have taken classes in meteorology and know-how to read into various data that determine cloud cover.

I love to show travelers the best in my country.

A personal favorite is, of course, the northern lights.

Where you'll be

We will be exploring the wilderness areas around Reykjavik.

The destinations will vary and be optimized to get you the best possible views and photos of the northern lights.

Some of the places we stop are the plains of Mosfellsdalur, volcanic ridges in the foothills around Reykjavik and the Reykjanes peninsula.

We will travel places buses cannot travel.

We have time and we will hunt down the northern lights wherever they may be hiding

Thor is so wonderful! He’s very knowledgeable, funny and prepared to see the lights. He was also super easy to communicate with. We got lucky and saw the incredible Northern Lights! Thor also took some amazing pictures of the lights and us and shared them so quickly. I would absolutely recommend this experience to anyone visiting Reykjavik! Definitely the highlight of our trip!

Amazing experience! What a great evening we had with Thor - he is a great storyteller and was able to find the lights at three different locations , he shared Icelandic folklore as well as explaining how / why the lights occurred and the measures used to find them. To top it off we got the most amazing photographs - thank you very much.

Unfortunately Thor had a medical issue and sent Krisjan in the Jeep limo which was cool and picked us up from our choice but once aboard it was a bit confusing as didn’t know where we were going or what was going on or how long we would be, we were sat at the back and couldn’t hear a word said by Krisjan if it did explain so would be better if he was mic-Ed up. Even after a clear day the clouds still came, we saw some lights but not as much as we had hoped, have 1 good professional photo but the rest were blurry. Appreciated the process of trying to find them

This was one of my favorite things I did during my time in Reykjavik. Thor has a true passion for what he does, he is so warm and welcoming, and we were able to see parts of the landscape that we otherwise wouldn’t have, as well as learn some stories about the land! His photos are exceptional and he kept us laughing the entire time! Bring a big coat. I would absolutely do this again, thank you Thor!

We thoroughly enjoyed this experience, Thor is an expert on the northern lights. We out of for 30min and saw a beautiful display of Aurora Borealis which was magical. I would recommend this experience. Thor is an excellent host. We enjoyed his humour and storytelling.
