At Glacier Guides our goal is to exceed our guests expectations by providing an extraordinary experience in an informative and personal way. Our team of dedicated, professional guides combines their wealth of mountain knowledge and local expertise to guide you through the terrain. We are an internationally recognized and American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA) accredited guiding operation with our base of operations located in Skaftafell, an oasis under the giant Vatnajokull Glacier in South Iceland, 330 km East of Reykjavik. We are passionate about the environment that we work and play in, we love exploring our local landscape and sharing this with visitors to the area.
From Skaftafell we operate spectacular glacier hikes, mountaineering trips, ice climbing, rock climbing, mountain biking and more. Included in our glacier tours are several originating from Reykjavik. We specialize in tailor-made trips for organized groups taking into account specific needs including group abilities, budgets, and timeframe. We offer extensive private expedition services, mountaineering courses and assistance with media productions on Iceland’s glaciers and mountains. Contact us for more information
