Ice Tour

Our lead guide Einar Rúnar Sigurðsson has been offering glacier hiking trips in southeast Iceland since spring 1994 so in 2024 will be 30 year anniversary of his Ice Tour. He will be you guide on this tour.

The tour is offered in winter months only. We will be driving and then hiking through area that was until recently covered by glaciers and once on the glacier we will be exploring glacier forms and enjoy hiking through landscape that is best described being something between land and sea.

On the glacier hike we will find a steep ice wall where we practice ice climbing in top rope security. The ice climbing is optional for each participant, you can simply see about if you want to give it a try when the time comes. We always choose the ice climbing location with the fitness of all the participants in mind.

The minimum age is 13 year old in an open departure, but if the trip is private we can be flexible so send email if you have kids that are a little bit younger.
