Essentially, it is Iceland´s beautiful and unspoiled nature that makes it such a unique
destination. Iceland is the outdoor enthusiast’s dream, where volcanoes, glaciers, hot springs and waterfalls set their mark on the landscape.
Outdoor Adventures – Iceland & Greenland
Icelandic Mountain Guides was established in 1994 by four pioneering mountaineers and outdoor enthusiasts whose aim was to introduce the wonders of Icelandic nature to travelers from all over the world. Today, the company is considered as Iceland´s premier adventure tour operator, offering outdoor adventures in both Iceland and Greenland. The tours range from short and easy glacier walks to hiking, trekking and multi-day expeditions.
Glacier Walk Pioneers
Icelandic Mountain Guides offers the original glacier walks on a daily basis, all year round from both Sólheimajökull glacier in the south and Skaftafell in Vatnajökull National Park. The glacier tours range from 2 – 7 hours, so everyone should be able to find a tour to their liking. On the glacier walks, you are guided through the magical landscape of the outlet glaciers, exploring the wonderland of ice sculptures, water cauldrons, ridges, and deep crevasses. Even though, there are no technical requirements needed for the tours, safety is a big issue when travelling on glaciers. Therefore, all Icelandic Mountain Guides go through a strict training program to make sure you enjoy your adventure in a fun and safe way.
