This is the perfect opportunity for those travelling on the South Coast and want to spice up their Icelandic holiday.

Meet your experienced glacier guide ad the Skaftafell Visitor Centre's parking lot. Skaftafell is a beautiful nature reserve in south-east Iceland, filled with spectacular natural wonder. You will explore one of these wonders today in an outlet glacier or the larger Vatnajökull. 

Your friendly guide will give you the equipment needed to scale the glacier, such as crampons and a helmet. Don't worry if you've never been glacier hiking before; the guide will show you the ropes. You will then be taken to the roots of the ice cap so you can begin your excursion.

Vatnajökull is not only Europe's largest glacier, but it is also home of the highest mountain range in Iceland and the tallest peak in the country, Hvannadalshnúkur. During the glacier walk, you will be exploring breathtaking ice formations and moulins while learning how glaciers are formed and how they constantly change. 

The most breathtaking feature you will see today will undoubtedly be the naturally formed ice cave. You will be able to walk inside this dazzling structure to see the fantastic blue ice found within.
