About einarr

My name is Einar Runar Sigurdsson and I live with my wife and sons on a remote farm called Hofsnes in the district Oraefi in southeast Iceland. My farm is at the base of Iceland’s highest mountain Oraefajokul with the highest peak Hvannadalshnukur just 17 km straight north of my house. Europe’s largest glacier Vatnajökull is my backyard and in front of my house the Hofsnes Sand Flats are only 3 km straight south and if I go 5 km further on my farm I reach the coast with the historical nature reserve cape Ingolfshofdi with thousands of nesting sea birds like puffins and great skuas. I’m the oldest (in working years) mountain guide and ice cave guide in Iceland. Me and my wife Matta own and run a small tour company called Öræfaferðir (in English we call it FromCoastToMountains). We do tours like www.puffintour.is in summer and www.icecaving.is in winter and in spring I still guide ski mountaineering trips to Hvannadalshnúkur.
