About
Working together as a team, using only the strength of our bodies and minds, we will hike together to the summit of Snæfellsjökull. Upon reaching the summit this natural way, you will be rewarded with an overwhelming sense of self-fulfillment and absolute triumph. ....Oh, and the views over the entirety of the Snæfellsness peninsula, the Westfjords, and Reykjavik City are not too bad either. We offer the Eco-friendly alternative that is both personal and sustainable! We cater for private and large groups too.

Great experience. Day hike to the summit of the Glacier. Fantastic guide (Greek). Good safety. Well adapted climbing pace for all. Tough experience in the clouds... To be highly recommended. (we even went back up 10mn to catch my phone I had lost)

Wow. George was the most professional, fun, and knowledgeable tour guide - and he was extremely patient as I pushed myself out of my comfort zone to jump over glacial crevasses and hike up steep inclines. Thank you for an extraordinary experience.

We did Snæfellsjökull ascension and it was simply amazing. George (our guide) was really cool, patient, strongly concerned about safety and well prepared. He also gave us some useful tips for our future adventures.

The views from the top of the glacier are stunning.

George the brilliant Scotsman took us up to the summit last night. The experience was just wonderful. I‘m an experienced mountaineer myself but beeing out there in the middle of the night was something else. Our guide was extremly helpful and made all the right calls at the right time. Your in good hands there. Also he is very knowledgeable concerning the wildlife and geology of the area. Thanks for a great mountain experience!

Went to the top of the glacier during midnight in June. It was a bit cloudy at the top but we saw amazing scenario on the way. The guides are all very experienced local people. The service and experience are of top quality.
