Owner description: Icelandic Mountain Guides is Iceland's premier adventure tour operator. The company was established in 1994 by four young outdoor enthusiasts with a passion for nature, travel and environmental advocacy. These pioneers aimed to introduce the wonders of Icelandic nature to travelers from all over the world. We started by offering Glacier Walks in Skaftafell and later on Solheimajokull glacier. Hiking, backpacking and other adventures and expeditions in Iceland and Greenland soon followed. Today, Icelandic Mountain Guides offers adventure tours ranging from short day tours to longer multi-day expeditions in the great outdoors in both summer and winter. So whether it is the exploration of the icescapes of glaciers and ice caves, crossing of impressive highlands, trekking in the extraordinary rhyolite massifs or hiking in fascinating valleys, our aim is to Make Every Moment an Experience.

While its called mountain guides they offer a tour of the Golden Circle with interesting side trips to Icelandic specialty locations -- tomato green houses, ice cream and dinner and a spa. Margaret, our guide, was a gem. While a true mountaineer herself, she understood that I could not physically do it all and sitting in the van/jeep we just chatted and I learned more about Iceland than I had thought I would have the opportunity to do (thankfully). It was brilliant and I will remember Margaret, the tour and my 7 van mates.

Last Friday the 23rd my wife and I were lucky to do the ‘Take a walk on the ice side’ day trip.
Of all the trips we did over our 5 day visit this was no.1 for both of us.
We were picked up by Margrét our guide and driver of the mini bus, we couldn’t of asked for more, she was a fantastic guide with plenty of knowledge about Iceland and mountaineering. I would defiantly recommend mini bus tours over the large coaches. Little more expensive but way more fun.
After the glacier walk we visited some outstanding waterfalls, pictures don’t do them justice.
Overall great company and a most excellent day out.
Thanks from Mark & Lara - Ireland
