Hey there you, who checks out guides
I'm one of them, that IMG provides
I work on the ice, cause it's so fun
There is no better, can't think of none

I got tired of the office life
And the glacier became my wife
I also work as a consultant
But this job is more brilliant

I'm a hard ice guide, yes level two
I love that ice, that I do
Walking, hiking or climbing up
yep, yep, yep, thats whats sup

Want to have fun, and bring you along
If in the mood, I'll break into song
Try to have a laugh or two
I'll do my best, that I'll do

Reviews from Clients

  • "Everything on the trip was fantastic. Our guide Agust was not only an expert, but a great person who was a pleasure to be with. Our group clicked very quickly, and we had a lot of fun. Of course, the trek was mind blowing, and we were lucky with weather most days. We were all quite sad when it ended. "

  • "Our guide Ágúst was outstanding in every respect: adaptable and caring for our wide ranging needs, e.g. helping more those who needed his extra support; knowledgeable & passionate about Iceland's geography, geology and culture; very open, capable & personable. Ask for him &, if you're lucky, he'll lead your trip too! "

  • "I really enjoyed everything about this hiking tour! Our guide August was amazing which really made the experience that much better. He was super informative, friendly and had a good sense of humour! He also prepared great meals for us, in particular the rice! The landscapes we covered were unlike anything I’ve ever seen so I was blown away each day and wish I booked a longer hike!". Lauren, Australia
