Tour description

This tour offers an exhilarating glacier adventure with exceptional sightseeing and truly unforgettable glacier exploring. Surrounded by spectacular scenery, being a glacier-explorer allows the unique experience of discovering the shapes and colours of the frozen world.

On this tour you will be exploring the amazing Vatnajökull. We have been exploring glaciers for over 20 years and in that time have learned to pick the best glaciers.

We will drive as close as we can get to the glacier and start our adventure from there. We will put on our crampons (included), and start our hike with an ice axe (also, included).
