Private Ice Climbing on Vatnajökull


Iceland Ice Climbing Tour with Coaching and Instruction

Join Ice Guardians for a full day of learning, coaching, and ice climbing on a glacier of Vatnajökull.

Spend up to 8 hours hiking to and ice climbing multiple faces and/or moulins on an outlet glacier of Vatnajökull.

Throughout the day, you will receive expert instruction from one of our guides.

Start on a relatively low-grade climb and progress to increased steepness up to vertical or more during the day.

If you enjoy heights and looking down bottomless pits, then you will get the opportunity to go down and climb out of glacier moulins, one of the scariest glacier features.

This is a PRIVATE trip to allow for maximum progression and contact time with your guide and coach.

A maximum of two persons are allowed on this trip at this price. If you have a larger group, or have any questions about private ice climbing on Vatnajökull, please contact us.

You will communicate directly with a guide who can provide you with all the information you need.
