Alpine Climbing Reykjavik

Skessuhorn climbing

Climbing the Matterhorn of Icelandic mountains is a rewarding feeling, join us Alpine climbing close to Reykjavík. It has everything to offer from rock climbing, scrambling in the summer to snow climbing and two short ice climbing pitches in the winter. A mountain no one should leave unthouced if your interest lay within alpine climbing.

Trip plan:

You will be picked up at your hotel 07:30 and we head north towards the small town of Borgarnes, driving for about 1 ½  hours. From the trailhead we have about 4km to hike towards the base of the majestic climbing where we gear up. From there we have about 400m of exciting alpine climbing on mixed terrain switching between snow, ice and rock while we slowly but surely make our way upwards before we reach the summit, Skessuhorn 920m (e.Troll Horn). From the summit we hike a trail off the mountain down to the flats that lead us back to our vehicle for the drive back to town.
