"Great private glacier tour"

My family of 5 (including children aged 14, 16, and 18) did a private 3 hour glacier tour with this company. The operation was smoothly run. We were outfitted with crampons and ice hacks and led up the glacier. Our guide, Helga, was excellent and very safety-conscious...read more

"Laugavegur‡ trail with IMG: just out of this world!"

I went on this hike recently with my daughter: it was just a fantastic experience!..Our guide for this trek, Selma, was outstanding in every way, and I think this sentiment was shared by everyone in our group. Her knowledge of the geology, the wildlife, the attractions and sites along the trail, and Icelandic customs and lore, really added to the experience, not to mention her skill as a tour guide. She knew the trail inside and out, was always patient with the group, always had something interesting to tell us, and never let any stragglers get left behind...I'd give it six stars if I could.

"lava caves, icelandic horses and glaciers"

I did these tours while I was scouting Iceland for future group trips for my university and I found the people with Icelandic Mountain Guides to be exactly what we are looking for.

On both of our tours (Lava Caves, Horses and Glaciers) the guides (Margaret and Hendrik) were very knowledgeable and added a wealth of information to the tours...read more

"Excellent Guiding & Small Group - Golden Circle & Magical Nights"

It's my mantra that great guiding makes a great trip. It's especially hard to find great guides in places that are experiencing an explosion of tourism popularity, the way Iceland is right now. It's also hard to find a tour during a short stay that covers a lot of ground but still feels like an authentic experience. It's easy enough to find a bus tour to take you on the Golden Circle in Iceland, or to go out looking for the northern lights in your rental car, but it's much harder to find an excellent guide and a small group tour that allows you to have an immersive, personal experience in a short time. You get what you pay for...and in this case, Icelandic Mountain Guides GCMN tour was well worth every penny!

"Hrútsfjallstindar Peaks"

Hiked in the Hrútsfjallstindar Peaks. Wanted to do the highest peak but they convinced me to do Hrútsfjallstindar Peaks. Good call. Great views all of the way up. It is an eight hour ascent in good weather so not your average day trip. But if you are trained and moderately experienced well worth it...read more

"Skaftafell Glacier Adventure †Hike‡"

We did a 4 hour glacier adventure hike with Àgúst last week. The tour is a well oiled machine for getting participants outfitted and ready for the hike. This where Àgúst took over. He clearly loved what he did. He educated as we hiked the glacier. We had a great time, learned how to hike a glacier with crampons/ ice axe and came back with awesome pictures and memories despite the rainy weather...read more

"Awesome volcanic trek"

I did the Complete Volcanic Trek (IMG386) in late August: 150 km in ten days from Langisjór to Landmannalaugar. It was an amazing trek with a good team of seven girls and three guys for the last part. This hike offers a rich variety of sceneries in remote areas. While it was my fifth time in Iceland, I enjoyed everything: mosses, volcanoes, glaciers, river crossings, black sand and rhyolite mountains...read more

"Double the fun!"

We booked with Icelandic Mountain Guides twice while in Iceland. The first was the 5 day Wilderness of Strútur Trail and the second was the Blue Ice Experience out of Skaftafell. They were both fabulous and I would highly recommend them.

This 2 day small group tour left from Reykjavik and took us all the way around the southern tip of Iceland and included two glacier treks, one with an ice cave. Our guide Margrit was terrific. We were dealing with about 4 hours of daylight and an incoming storm but she was able to work out the timing to give us a beautiful hike on the glacier and showed us some really cool black beaches...read more
