Redefining Adventure Videos

First video in the Redefining Adventure series.

I’ve published two videos on my Redefining Adventure philosophy.

I want to bring adventure and expeditions into the 21st century and challenge some of the tired tropes of what adventure is.

I also hope these videos can help aspiring travellers and adventurers to pursue their dreams by answering some of the questions that I had when I was first starting out.

So far, I’ve recorded five episodes and the first two are now out.

Please watch them on YouTube and follow my channel if you like the content.

The NZ Audience Loves SAILAU

Vox pop at world premiere of SAILAU at Doc Edge International Film Festival New Zealand

With SAILAU we want to redefine adventure by telling a positive story from the second largest island in the world: New Guinea.

According to the audience at the world premiere at the Doc Edge International Film Festival in New Zealand, SAILAU succeeded. 

Many thanks to all of you who supported this project. It payed off!


We are super excited to tell you that our SAILAU film has been selected for New Zealand’s International Documentary Film Festival, Doc Edge.

My wife and I will be there for the premiere and are looking forward to meeting the audience. I might also sneak in a book signing and a camping trip.

If you are in New Zealand from late may to June you will be able to experience our epic voyage on the big screen. Hope to see you there.

NB. More festival premieres to be announced soon.

Gennem Grand Canyon – Det Vildeste Eventyr

Gennem Grand Canyon – Det Vildeste Eventyr. Premiere September 1. 2022 on Discovery+ Denmark.

After making my own adventure films for 10 years, I finally got my first job as TV-host. I’m the expedition leader on a reality-adventure tv show on Discovery+ Denmark.

This is not your ordinary survival show. This is a celebration of adventure: how the powers of nature can enrich and change us.

During a 16 day expedition of wild rapids and stunning landscapes, 6 celebrities; Jesper Nøddesbo, Andreas Jessen, Ibi Støving, Skinz and Anne-Marie Rindom, learns to embrace the magic of nature and work together to make it through.

As a new tv host I was nervous in the beginning, but I soon realised it was more or less the same as being a tour guide: share your passion and make sure everyone has the adventure of a lifetime.

And of course, it also helped that I have shot my own adventure documentaries, learn about the latest here SAILAU

Thor’s contribution to Danish book on Expedition and Adventure. Den Yderste Grænse.

Den Yderste Grænse, Redaktør: Bjørn Harvig. Gads Forlag Maj 2022.

I had the honour of writing a chapter for this new compilation of spectacular expeditions undertaken by both Danish and international adventurers through the centuries.

My chapter is on the crossing of Cenderawashi Bay during our Circumnavigation of New Guinea, one of the most frightening experiences of my life.

The books title translates: “The furthest border/limit” Editor Bjørn Harvig, published (in Danish only) by Gads Forlag. Available from 25 May 2022.

The Paradox of Consumption – article in WILD Magazine #183

Fact is that the outdoor appeal we consume is damaging the very nature that we love to explore.

Most outdoor media is (partially) funded by outdoor brands through advertisements. Hence critiquing these companies can be a delicate matter, luckily WILD magazine recognised the importance of this issue and printed my article.

If you wish to read my proposed solutions to this paradox (like buying second hand or renting gear) then look for WILD #183 magazine in your Australian newsstand.
