Aron Bjarnason, Lead guide & Craftsman

Aron Bjarnason

I was born and raised in Reykjavík, Iceland. Even though I am born in the city I try to spend as much time as I can in the highlands of Iceland with my family. Far away from civilization. I was invited for an Open water diver course a few years ago and I was hooked on diving and tourism right away. My passion has always been traveling around Iceland with either my hiking gear or divegear. Sometimes both.
Making my job as a diveguide the perfect job for me!
