About the tour:

Iceland is a beautiful place to try out rock climbing, put on your climbing shoes chalk up and try it out for yourself. Rock climbing is a really good way of enjoying nature and trying something new.

We have some good multi pitch routs close to Reykjavík both sport and trad climbing, so you can have breakfast in the morning go for a good climb and be back for pizza and beer around dinner time.

Starting 8:30 in the morning we have about 30-40 minutes drive to our destination. The approach takes 20minutes. At the base of the rout our guide will go over the rout and explain everything you want to know. The routs we offer are from 5.6 -.5.9grade so we can do something that is suitable for you.
