At Black Ridge Mountaineering we love to travel and see Iceland. As part of that we also believe that having a small activity is key to the enjoyment of a tour. This is so we can stretch your legs, and to go a little further into the land, discovering new and exciting places and sights to see.

We don’t intend to hike any mountains in these tours, but we may hike across some open land of along a trail. Our sightseeing tours are designed so that they are available to as many people as possible.

Of course, if you or any member of your party have questions about physical activities, please feel free to contact us. We are here to help and see if we can resolve any questions that you may have.
