Glacier Walk with an Introduction to Ice Climbing.

On this new adventurous glacier walk and ice climbing tour we take you to the majestic Svínafellsjökull glacier where we explore all its features such as water cauldrons, ridges and deep crevasses.

At the right location we give everyone a chance for a short and easy introduction of the sport of ice climbing. With only 6 passengers per guide on this tour, everyone should have their time to shine.
