Tour Description

This tour is one of the most unique tours we offer and definitely for the adventurous. We combine two of the most exciting alpine pursuits; Icelands Tallest Summit with Alpine Ice Climbing. This is a full-on day so it’s important that guests have previous alpine ski’ing experience.

The trip will begin before we even meet with a pre-departure briefing / call to confirm you have all the correct gear and answer any questions about the trip. Upon our meeting at Foss Hotel Glacier Lagoon parking lot, we will drive up to 700m, which allows us to avoid the long walk from sea-level with our skis on our backs. We will begin our skin track with the beautiful Vestri Hanppur in view. 

The guide will decide whether you will climb Vestri Hnappur or Icelands Tallest Peak, Hvannadalshnjúkur. Either climb will be sure to top your desire for a fun alpine ascent. Following our fun ski run back down the car and departure from Foss Hotel Glacier Lagoon, you can expect a 20 shot photo package within 7 days so you can relive these awesome moments.

what are our guests saying?

It was one of my best experiences in a glaciar! I’m from Spain, and usually I do many climbs here. You can enjoy a real tour in a glacier. Not the typical walk around like cows in a farm. I really appreciate people whose live the mountain and share that emotions and take it like yours.

After a short gear check and some introduction for ice axes and crampons we started our personalized glacier expedition! Three and a half hour later i was completely wasted with a huge adrenaline rush in my blood. This journey through the eternal ice was one of my best moment in my life!

We wandered a full day with Mike on (and inside) a glacier and I had the time of my life. It feels good to spend time with someone who loves and knows everything about those massive ice cubes 😀 Cherry on the cake : I was even able to take some shots from inside a moulin!
