I or another guide from my team will pick you up at your hotel in Reykjavik around 8:00 am. From there, we’ll head to my office for a boot and crampon fitting. Then we’ll drive for about 2 hours to the Sólheimajökull glacier. On the first day, we’ll mostly work on climbing skills and rope work. At the end of the day, we’ll head to our hotel in the countryside.
We’ll have breakfast at the hotel (included in the price) and then head back out to the Sólheimajökull glacier for another beautiful day of glacier climbing. We’ll spend the day both working on our rope skills and perfecting our climbing technique. At the end of the day, we’ll go back to Reykjavik and will arrive around 7:00 pm.
I'll pick you up from your hotel in Reykjavik.
One night in a countryside hotel- you might have the chance to see the Northern Lights!
Minimum 3 participants needed. One climbing guide will be provided for every 6 participants. No prior ice climbing experience is required for this trip. I might not be available to be your guide for this course. If that is the case, another member of my team would be happy to guide you.
