Orri Sigurjónsson

Orri Sigurjónsson grew up in the small town of Hvanneyri in the western region of Iceland. He studied carpentry in college, but his true calling has always been the enchantments of Iceland's rugged landscapes, and he has been guiding in Iceland since 2010. "Traveling throughout the mountains is my passion," he says, "and being able to share that passion with other travelers and show them around my beautiful country is something I consider a privilege." When he's not leading trips, he enjoys mountaineering, skiing, ice climbing, skydiving, and playing music with his band, Vertigo.

Client Testimonials


We have now been on eleven Wilderness trips, and have never had a guide that was less than ‘very good’—but Orri is something special. He had a maturity and presence well beyond his years, was excellent at reading group dynamics, had a youthful enthusiasm about him, and it's obvious he enjoys what he does. He is passionate about the outdoors but also sincerely seems to enjoy interacting with the group members. He joins a select list of guides where we will consider a future trip just because he is leading it.

I have been on a number of great trips with Wilderness Travel, and Orri was by far my favorite guide I have ever had. Kind and conscientious, knowledgeable and entertaining, it was a joy to travel through Iceland with him!
