Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Icelandic Mountain Guides is Iceland's premier adventure tour operator. The company was established in 1994 by four young outdoor enthusiasts with a passion for nature, travel and environmental advocacy. These pioneers aimed to introduce the wonders of Icelandic nature to travelers from all over the world. We started by offering Glacier Walks in Skaftafell and later on Solheimajokull glacier. 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.

Our super jeep arrived promptly for our pick up in Reykjavik. The guide was very friendly and very informative throughout the day. It was a fairly long trip to the south but we enjoyed seeing a different landscape to the one we had experienced in the north east of Iceland. This part of the journey was broken by a stop-off at a nice service area for toilet and snacks.
The jeep trip was up quite a rough track and included a river crossing and a careful traverse of a snow slope. We left the jeep at two mountain huts and walked up and down in mist across snow patches. As we closed in on the volcano steam was seeping up from the warm ground. On the summit we were fortunate to see the mist disappear and the sun came out giving superb views.
There were just the two of us, the guide and a cameraman making a promo video meaning our experience was quite intimate. We thoroughly enjoyed the day.

We loved the "Take a Walk on the Ice Side" tour. The walk is not very difficult, and my husband and I who are both in our 60s had no trouble keeping up. It rained on and off while we were walking, and we walked through some small streams so be sure to wear waterproof gear! The other stops on the trip were a plus. Don't miss this unique experience in Iceland.

My friend and I booked a half-day glacier hiking trip with Iceland Mountain Guides in Skaftafell National Park. The guides were a lot of fun, knowledgable, and really entertaining. The company provided everything we needed for the day, and the sights were amazing. Definitely a not-to-be-missed experience in Iceland - worth the drive out to the SE coast. Plus it brings you out near the Ice Lagoon, which you can see after you leave!
