Jóhann hails from Reykjavík, Iceland but has lived in Guatemala, Ecuador, France, and Svalbard. He has always been fascinated with nature and adventure, so getting paid to explore sounded like a good idea. Thus, he became a guide at IMG. Over the last 8 seasons, Jóhann has worked mostly part-time for the company. This allows for him to continue his studies to become a biologist. When he is not working or studying biology, he enjoys hitting the ski slopes, hiking, kayaking, camping, and scuba diving.
His professional qualifications/experience include:
- Wilderness First Responder (WFR)
- Full Hard Ice Guide
- Alpine guide level II
- Ski guide level I
- Has been a member of a rescue team since 2006
