The adventure begins with our two hour drive to the starting location. The drive is astoundingly beautiful with spectacular views ash mountains, waterfalls and volcanos in every direction.

Once we arrive, you will find that the glaciated landscape of southern Iceland is the perfect place to spend the day exploring. There are numerous different locations to ice climb offering all sorts of different challenges from easy first attempts to harder, steep walls.

Regardless of your skill level, there will be something for you to enjoy and due to the small nature of our groups, the guide will have plenty of time to work with you on your techniques as well as teach you new skills.

The majority of the trip is focussed on ice climbing, but in between climbing sessions we will trek across glaciers, enjoying the stunning scenery and even making a quick detour to Skógafoss waterfall.

By the end of this trip, you will almost certainly have increased your love of both ice climbing and Iceland!

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this epic 1-day ice climbing and glacier trekking expedition in the sublime beauty of southern Iceland!
