A Bit About Björn
When Björn discovered the traveling lifestyle there was no turning back. He quickly found a way to travel full time and the road became his home. His passion for adventures and traveling to lesser-known territories became his main focus. With no more than 7 kilos in his backpack, he wandered around the world exploring new places.
After over a decade of traveling, he wanted to do something more and share his travel experiences.
Crazy Puffin Adventures was born to let people in on the journey and create unique adventures every year.
