The climbing will be tailor made to suit your strength and experience. So easy to start with to find out what the group members are able to do, and then for those that need more challenge, we will put up a more steep route. We will hike around 4 km total on the tour.

The Ice Climbing Tour of FromCoastToMountains is a great introductory to the world of ice climbing. This winter we will be climbing just outside the amazing Sapphire Ice Cave in Vatnajökull, so you will have the best of both worlds, thrilling ice climbing up vertical blue ice walls, as well as checking out a beautiful ice cave.

All the ice climbing will be done in full security on a top rope.

The beautiful Sapphire Ice Cave is very popular by many companies this winter so there are often quite crowded situations there. But since we will stop there quite long time while practicing ice climbing just outside the entrance of the ice cave you will have more chance of seeing the ice cave in between the big groups that visit it all day long.

We will finish the trip by a short glacier walk up on the glacier, studying ice tunnels, sink holes and other glacier phenomenum.

Price: 35.000 ISK

The meeting place is located 4 1/2 hour drive away east of Reykjavík in clear road conditions and the duration of the drive often takes much longer time in icy and wintery conditions. We recommend people to stay close to us the night before the tour.
