Egill Halldorsson

new rich creative improving the world & having a ball while at it

Egill is an entrepreneur from Iceland made in the 90s. most proudly owning Wake Up Reykjavik + Reykjavik Food Walk, the #1 travel company in Reykjavik and Gorilla House, the baby project that is shaping online retail in Iceland.

Hey team! My name is Egill, I’m all about pursuing happiness, exploring planet earth and creating new opportunities to improve our world or my own personal standard of living. I’m highly passionate about self-development and creating/building businesses.

I am the co-founder of Wake Up Reykjavik & the Reykjavik Food Walk, the absolute funnest travel brands in Iceland where we welcome approx. 10.000 adventurous travellers each year. We allow our guests to explore Reykjavik, Iceland not in a boring touristy way, but like locals through authentic food & drink. Reykjavik Food Walk is rated #1 of all tours in Reykjavik on Trip Advisor.

My most recent project is Gorilla House, the first fulfilment centre in Iceland. We store inventory, pick’n pack products and ship orders fast for online retailers, allowing Icelandic online stores to offer better service than ever possible and make more money with 10x less effort. I sincerely believe Gorilla House will be a powerhouse in Icelandic retail, soon allowing hundreds of stores to get and stay big.

My home is in cosy old down town Reykjavik with my fiancé, Tanja & our 100 years old dog Bella. But our favourite place is exploring our world together, seeking new unique experiences.
