Born in the city of Reykjavík but raised here and there in the South of Iceland, Sölvi had tried his hand in many a field of work: planting trees on dark sands, heating saunas in a ferryboat crossing the stormy Atlantic, keeping a cabin in a lush valley surrounded by glaciers and being a ranger underneath the lava of Snæfellsjökull. Being a mountain guide is by far the most normal occupation he has ever had.
The one in Iceland, of course ;)

In high school, I heard a radio program on the pilgrim way to Santiago de Compostela, the Camino. I became a bit obsessed with it and after graduation, I went to the continent to do the walk. It transformed my life, or at least the next ten years of it.
Peregrination, both fast and slow!
Reading, hiking, playing board games. Spending time with the family has become my alpha and my omega.
