Our guides are some of the most experienced runners in Iceland and frequently take part in trail running events and longer running tours. With our wide selection of running tours, from demanding or strenuous runs with 20 – 35 km / 13 – 21 mi per day to moderate runs with 5 – 10 km / 3 – 6 mi per day, all runners should find something that suits them for travelling around Iceland.

If you are planning a vacation in Iceland and want to experience the pure Icelandic nature and be able to exercise each day as well, then why not try one of our tours. Our guides will help you enjoy trail running in Iceland whilst exploring the environment and its beautiful nature.

We began by planning tours that we would go on ourselves where we could run as well. So we started using running as a way to travel and realized it’s probably the ideal way for all runners. So with our experience from the running, guiding, managing, tourism and travel industry we managed to design tours especially for runners. Keeping in mind that runners not only want to run but also enjoy spectacular natural surroundings and what it has to offer.

Glacier Guides Iceland

We offer trips into the Ice fall
Numerous outlet glaciers descend from the main glacier plateau of Vatnajökull, all unique in shape, form and accessibility. We offer amazing glacier hikes on the most beautiful one of the bunch, the Falljökull. The ice slowly crawls down from the Öræfajökull caldera (just under 1900m) and falls to about 300 m elevation giving our glacier the well suited name Falljökull which translates to „Falling Glacier“. Our Glacier Explorer, Glacier Grand Slam and Glacier Extreme trips give you a chance to stand or ice-climb inside the magnificent Icefall created by the moving ice.

We cater for a range of fitness abilities
Because of Falljökull´s gradient the front of the glacier is low angle and offers a great variety of glacial features as soon as you take your first steps on crampons. These include the infamous glacier mouse, crevasses, moulins and often smaller ice caves. On our longer hikes you get a chance to put your new crampon skills to the test as we move into the icefall for an exploration or an Ice-climb.

Our guides and staff
This one you will just have to experience yourself but we think they are the most humble, happy, eager to please and honest people we know. Most of them have been with us from the start and their knowledge of the area is uncanny at times which is a bonus for our guests. Please do not take our word for it- check out tripadvisor.com and see what others had to say.

Experience the retreat of the glacier first-hand
Making your way to the glacier from the parking lot, you will witness how much the glacier has retreated and see the evidence it has left in it´s path. The walk into the glacier takes on average 20 minutes and is a great part of the over all experience.

Amazing Views
On the walk in, weather permitting, you can see Iceland’s highest peak Hvannadalshjnúkur, along with Falljökull´s brother, Virkisjökull, falling from the high caldera. As we move up and look back you will see evidence of the glacial retreat along with the distant black sands, cut by glacier rivers, blending into the North Atlantic ocean providing a magnificent backdrop.

Glacier water
With clear glacial melt-water running on the glaciers surface in multiple streams you can take a sip and fill up your bottles with the best water Iceland has to offer before it makes it´s way to the murky glacier river and eventually to the ocean.

Sheep
Each spring the farmers let the sheep roam freely to make their way into the highlands, on our hikes it is an amazing sight to see them carefully make their way above vertical walls dropping into the valley in search of the perfect patch of grass.
