Skessuhorn climbing

Climbing the Matterhorn of Icelandic mountains is a rewarding feeling, join us Alpine climbing close to Reykjavík. It has everything to offer that you would expect form an alpine route. Snow climbing in the beginning, and as we progress up to steeper terrain we find our selfes climbing on mixed terrain and ice. This iconinc mountain should not be missed if alpine climbing is down your alley!

Trip plan:

You will be picked up at your hotel 07:00 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.
