Skessuhorn north west ridge is a classic alpine climb. We start with one hour drive from Reykjavík heading north-west to the
valley Skorradalur. We will start by going over the task for the day
and than beginning the approach to the base of Skessuhorn.

Approach takes from 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hour over swamps, rocks and beautiful landscape. Under the mountain we gear up for the climb and have some lunch. After some bite we’ll go over how to climb and how to use some of the climbing gear.Climbing the ridge takes from 2-3 hours and is one of the must fun ridge to climb in Iceland. This is not a super difficult one but a fun one.Descent from the summit takes about 1hour, than 2 1/2 back to the car.
