Starting point

Hike up the mystical Snæfellsjökull glacier, featured in folklore, novels, and providing inspiration for artists throughout the centuries. Not only is the glacier beautiful, but it sits on top of a dormant volcano, so when you hike to the summit, you can tick off two items on your bucket list.

What to expect?

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, 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.
