Jóhann

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
