Baldur is born and raised in Iceland, but he has strong ties to Canada too, where he spent part of his childhood and later completed his university degrees.

In addition to being a certified guide, he is a trained psychologist and a mobility instructor with the blind. He has developed and run adventure-based programs with various groups and organizations in Iceland and in his varied career, a common theme has been to promote activity and to connect with nature. Through his work and in his free time, Baldur loves to explore his country and capture its beauty in photographs.
