About the creators of Crazy Puffin

Björn Pálsson

Björn has spent the last 9 years of his life working and traveling all over the world.  With over 10 years of experience working as a chef and education from South Africa as a nature guide, he will guide you on this 5 day camping trip around Iceland. After

returning back to Iceland from traveling he decided to set up a proper high class budget tour for travelers that seek adventure and have the love for camping. The outcome became Crazy Puffin.

Kristófer Hauksson

Kristófer has been a bit of a wanderer as well. After living in all the Nordic countries (Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland) since the age of 4, he has finally decided to come back to his home country. 

Kristófer has spent the last 9 years working in the hotel & service business.

He will be joining for some tours, but otherwise taking care of the booking/questions/ pre & post-tour assistance. One day Björn called and said "let’s make it cheaper for people to see our country". Thus, Crazy Puffin became a 2-man army.
