The Icelandic Mountain Guides Team

Icelandic Mountain Guides is proud to be the leading company for staff training and quality tourism. We have over 15 years of experience in educating, entertaining, and assuring the safety of our guests from the Greenland icecap, to the summit of Antarctica and everywhere in between. The pinnacle of our educational program is the 27 days of direct training and exams our glacier guides go through from the time they are hired until they achieve the requirements for an IMG Mountain Guide. The training adopts standards from New Zealand. In addition to training courses, our guides work over 100 days under direct and indirect supervision and are required to advance to a certain standard in their personal mountaineering. Most of our guides will have completed an eight-day Wilderness First Responder first aid course and have received advanced training from working with the elite units of the Icelandic rescue teams. With us, you are not only in good hands, we believe you are in the best of hands and we are eager to get a chance to prove this to you.
