Icelandic Mountain Guides Expeditions

Icelandic Mountain Guides offers skiing and hiking expeditions in Iceland, Greenland, and other parts of the world. A ski expedition across the mighty Vatnajökull, Europe's largest glacier, crossing of the great Greenland ice cap, and a 30-days hike over the Icelandic highlands is among the expeditions available.

Whether you choose skis, snowshoes, or boots, an expedition with Icelandic Mountain Guides will be a memorable experience. Although expeditions differ in level of difficulty, landscapes, and conditions, they are all real challenges, both mentally and physically demanding. The reward is a unique experience and memories worth passing on to the next generation.
