Summer is the best time to climb due to extended daylight hours, but winter ice climbing is also popular.

If you have climbed before, your guide will help refine your skills, focusing on specific techniques to help you improve your climbing. These could be footwork, route reading, or mastering belays.

For experienced climbers, the tour can be tailored specifically for trad climbing, as there are some fantastic opportunities just outside Reykjavik. The guide will adjust the gear and approach to match this.

Each guest will have around two hours of moving time, enjoying stunning views and thrilling climbs. This climb is a unique experience. You’ll make plenty of memories to share with your family and friends when you return home.
