Mountaineering Courses

Icelandic Mountain Guides Training Courses have been running for the last couple of years in close partnership with the Icelandic Alpine Club. In addition to being experienced mountaineers with backrounds in the Icelandic highlands, all of our guides are active or former members of the different ISAR (Iceland Search And Rescue) teams throughout the country, ensuring the best in skills and experience.
