Overview

Icelandic Mountain Guides is Iceland's premier adventure tour operator. The company was established in 1994 by four young outdoor enthusiasts with a passion for nature, travel and environmental advocacy. These pioneers aimed to introduce the wonders of Icelandic nature to travelers from all over the world. We started by offering Glacier Walks in Skaftafell and later on Solheimajokull glacier. Hiking, backpacking and other adventures and expeditions in Iceland and Greenland soon followed. Today, Icelandic Mountain Guides offers adventure tours ranging from short day tours to longer multi-day expeditions in the great outdoors in both summer and winter. So whether it is the exploration of the icescapes of glaciers and ice caves, crossing of impressive highlands, trekking in the extraordinary rhyolite massifs or hiking in fascinating valleys, our aim is to Make Every Moment an Experience.

This trek was spectacular! Our guide, Chris, was knowledgeable, patient and very competent. We were fairly experienced hikers, but had very limited knowledge of mountaineering. He explained everything, managed our expectations and kept us safe and happy. He knew when to push us and coach...More

Hello and thank you for the question. If you have the time, I recommend stopping in Skaftafell. The surroundings are stunning and the area is part of Vatnajökull National Park (Vatnajökulsþjóðgarður).
