Instagrammer, photographer and adventurer, Gunnar Freyr is exploring Iceland one picture at a time. Born and raised by Icelandic parents in Denmark, it has always been Gunnar‘s desire to live in his home country and explore its beautiful nature. In late 2014, feeling overworked and unfulfilled, he decided to quit his corporate job in Copenhagen, sell most of his belongings and buy a one-way ticket to Iceland. Suit and tie were replaced by the traditional Icelandic woollen sweater and a pair of hiking boots, and the all-night working hours were exchanged with beautiful moments spent in the Icelandic wilderness. At first, photography and Instagram was only a beautiful hobby. However, the overwhelming success of his Instagram feed has inspired him to take his project to the next level. Launching his website, blog on Guide to Iceland and engaging in partnerships with a number of exclusive companies and brands that inspire him and that he feels proud to represent, is a great driver to further adventures.
