"I am an experienced ice climber and my wife had never ice climbed before. We wanted to experience it together in Iceland. (...) My wife was amazed that she could do something like ice climbing, which before she did not believe was possible. We had a great time with Robbie and would recommend Asgard for both experienced and novice climbers."
