All about the trip
We will start with one hour drive from Reykjavík heading north-west to the valley Skorradalur. When we get to our destination, we will go over the task for the day, and our tour guides will give you some instructions. After that, we begin the approach to the base of Skessuhorn. The approach takes from 2 and a half to 3 and a half hours over swamps, rocks and beautiful landscape.
Under the mountain, we will gear up for the climb and have some lunch. After a snack, we’ll talk more about how to climb and how to use some of the climbing gear.
Climbing the ridge will take us about 2-3 hours. It is one of the most fun ridges to climb in Iceland. It is not super difficult, so you don´t need to worry about not finishing this climb. On the summit, you can take photos, and you could enjoy the view before going back down.
