About Icelandic Mountain Guides
Icelandic Mountain Guides is Iceland's premier adventure tour operator.

Hiking, backpacking and other adventures and expeditions in Iceland and Greenland soon followed. Today, Icelandic Mountain Guides offers adventure tours ranging from short day tours to longer multi-day expeditions in the great outdoors in both summer and winter. So whether it is the exploration of the icescapes of glaciers and ice caves, crossing of impressive highlands, trekking in the extraordinary rhyolite massifs or hiking in fascinating valleys, our aim is to Make Every Moment an Experience.

This was by far my favourite activity in Iceland! We were a small group (unexpectedly!) on a midday Glacier Explore up Solheimajokull. Kate was our guide and she was absolutely brilliant, making sure we all knew how to walk on the ice and how to use our ice picks (or not, as the case may be!). Kate also told us about the glacier and how it has shrunk quite rapidly in recent years. The constantly changing landscape of the glacier was described, as well as how features like the ash piles affect it. As a scientist, I appreciated the details (and the description of the experiment at our turnaround point, which measures the depth of the ice in the glacier). I cannot recommend this tour enough. If we had more time I would've signed up for the ice climbing tour in a heartbeat. Next time!!

Wow! The adventure of a lifetime!! Our guide, Claudia was informative, professional and entertaining. The first stretch of the hike was a bit challenging just due to how steep it is, but worth every step!! Can’t say enough about this experience and this tour company. They were very courteous and efficient from the first contact until we handed in our gear, and there aren’t words to describe how it is to walk atop an ancient glacier.

Very cool experience on the glacier. Security is the first priority of the team! We had a great guide (Agúst) who was professional, funny, passionate, caring for everyone AND a great photograph - thanks for the unforgettable experience!
