Ice Climbing Tours

Ice climbing tours from Icelandic Mountain Guides are adaptable to any skill level, and if you are a first time climber or beginner, we will teach you everything you need to know to use the equipment safely.  Ice climbing tours are about 4 hours, including gear orientation and will leave on demand for a party of 4 or more.

Day Tours: Reykjavik-based tours are available year round, and in the summer, tours are also available from our base camp in Skaftafell.
