Single pitch

Iceland is a beautiful place to try out rock climbing, put on your climbing shoes chalk up and try it out for yourself.


This tour is a half day of rock climbing. We use 3 different places for this tour, two of them are about 40 minutes away from Reykjavík, and the other one is on the south coast.

Starting 9:00 in the morning we drive to the climbing crag. All the climbing places have a short approach but good hiking boots are nice to have.

After a short hike to the base of the cliff your guide will go over how this works.  He goes over harnesses, rope systems, climbing equipment and climbing technique.

Then your guide will put up top rope system so you can enjoy your climbing with out a fall. We put the rope up on different locations so you can try different grades.

For this tour you don’t have to know much about climbing, we are going to show you how it works.
