Tryggvi Guðmundsson - Guide

Tryggvi is from Iceland but has lived in the United States of America for 6 years. He feels that nature recharges him in a way that nothing else does, so he became a guide in order to spend his working time in the great outdoors. He started working for IMG in 2015. During his off time, he enjoys fly fishing, hiking, traveling and music. The highlands of Iceland have his heart and so do the Westfjords.
