Icelandic Mountain Guides’ have many action-packed tours
Iceland is a volcanic island in flux, with magma breaking through fissures and periodic eruptions that constantly reshape the rocky landscape. That makes it a hiker’s paradise of rugged landscapes, towering mountains, vast glaciers and rolling lava fields. Icelandic Mountain Guides is a leading tour company that guides travellers from around the world.
, which has been in business for more than 20 years, offers hiking, ice climbing, mountain climbing, cross country skiing, glacier walking, horseback riding and Super Jeep tours throughout the year. Passionate and experienced guides revel in taking travellers on day tours, multi-day tours, and expeditions in Iceland, as well as guided tours to Greenland. The company offers tours for all ages and levels of fitness.
Tours from Reykjavík
Icelandic Mountain Guides offers numerous tours departing conveniently from Reykjavík. One of the most popular tours is a glacier walk on the Sólheimajökull glacier tongue where travellers will see ice sculptures, waterfalls and stunning scenery. The tours kick off with a two-hour drive from Reykjavík, taking you right under the famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano that caused so much trouble with its eruption in the spring of 2010. Just to the east of the volcano lies Sólheimajökull, an outlet glacier from Mýrdalsjökull, Iceland’s fourth-largest glacier. There, the guides take you on a safe and easy glacier walk onto the ice field. As you explore ridges, and deep crevasses, you will learn more and more about these disappearing giants. After an adventurous walk, on the way back to Reykjavík, there is a stop at the two picturesque waterfalls of Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss.
As the summer comes to an end, there is no need to fret because the Northern Lights’ season is just around the corner! Icelandic Mountain Guides offers a number of tours that incorporate a Northern Lights hunt, including trips to the Golden Circle, glacier walks, and Super Jeep tours. There’s nothing quite like watching the majestic lights changing colours, dancing and flickering in the sky, painting it with deep green, white, purple and red splashes.
