Join this fantastic 4-hour glacier hiking tour on a gorgeous outlet glacier of Vatnajökull and experience the adrenaline of ascending on of Iceland‘s most fascinating geological features. This is the perfect opportunity for those travellers in the Vatnajökull area looking to occupy their afternoon with an authentically Icelandic glacier.

Vatnajökull National park covers a total area of 14,141 km2, approximately 14% of Iceland, and is comprised of stunning ice caps, dramatic mountainscapes, lush valleys and, of course, Skaftafell Nature Reserve.

At the foot of the glacier, your friendly knowledgeable and experienced glacier guide will provide you with all of the necessary trekking equipment, including a helmet, crampons and ice axe, if needed - hiking boots and rain gear can be rented at extra cost. They will also proceed to give an educational and entertaining safety briefing, laying out what to look for on the glacier, and sharing interesting facts about the region. When everyone is geared up, you will begin to make your way up the ice cap.

You will climb the glacier tongue and into a fantastical frozen world of ice sculptures, blue moulins and deep crevasses will reveal itself to you. Make sure you don‘t forget your camera!

So don‘t delay any longer! Hurry now,  and book your tour by choosing a date!
