Safety & Guide Training


All of our guides are highly experienced in dealing with the often unforgiving Icelandic elements. They are all certified Wilderness First Responders and go through crevasse and mountain rescue training every year under the supervision of a UIAGM-IFMGA certified guide. In doing this we strive to maintain the highest standard of training for our guides.

There are many rewarding things in exploration and adventure including learning something new about a place and yourself, this is the reason many of us travel. To be able to join a trip with like-minded people yet with many unknown variables including your fellow travelers is your first leap of faith. For many of us, this is a step outside of our comfort zone. We are glad that you have found this page to find out more about the steps we take to mitigate the inherent risks involved in the trips we offer. Our goal is to make your excursion with us enjoyable and for you to feel assured about your safety.

Although Glacier Guides is growing quickly, we take great caution not to lose sight of our goals and to never let the quality of the experience for our guests suffer.
