Mountaineering is any activity that is done on mountainous terrain. Such as hiking, trekking, rock climbing, skiing, glacier travel and ice climbing. The list, of course, is longer but this is just a taste of what can be termed as mountaineering activities.

For the sake of clarity we will break down the term of mountaineering into two fields. The first, we will call mountaineering. By this, we mean that it’s more than a hike or trek. Ropes may be involved and more knowledge is needed to partake in the activity.

The second, we will call hiking, by which we mean simply hiking on any terrain where we are not wearing any technical equipment. Nor travelling over any hard technical ground or expecting any need for advanced systems to complete the tour.

We at Black Ridge Mountaineering love being in the mountains and love what we do. If it’s hiking or any other activity, we are on board. Let us help you if you have any questions about any of our tours or if you have any questions about general equipment that will be needed for these activities.

As we don’t provide personal clothing or boots it is best to contact us in regard to your needs. We are very happy to help you with all your questions.

Rock’n Ice – two days adventure

On this tour you will be taken along the entire South coast of Iceland over a two-day period. You will visit some very well-known places along with lesser known but equally beautiful locations.

To start this adventure, we travel to Seljalandsfoss where we can walk behind the fall and view the water plunging into a large pool created by the years of water diving over the edge from above.

Then we travel to the outlet glacier of Solheimajökull. It is here that we will hike and climb the glacier ice. Travelling further East to Reynisjfara , we will see the basalt columns that have formed on the beach. After this amazing day we will be heading to the wonderful seaside town of Vik to have our evening meal and spend the night.

On our second day we will first drive to the glacier lagoon of Jökullsaron in the East of Iceland and have a food break there and you may take the opportunity to book a boat trip on the laggoon. Then we will visit the Diamond beach where you can walk among the broken icebergs. Now we are ready to go climbing in Hnappavellur, this is one of the main climbing crags in Iceland . Your guide will set up the routes and introduce you to rock climbing.
