Explore the blue ice of a little-known glacier in Iceland far from the crowds with this 3.5 hour trip for just up to eight people. Those looking for a peaceful, personalized glacier hike upon Europe’s largest ice cap should not overlook this small-group excursion.
This amazing experience begins when you find your guide at the meeting point in Skaftafell Nature Reserve with a limited number of other participants. This area is a must-see part of the country for many visitors due to its abundance of spectacular scenery, making it easy to access for South Coast travelers.
Your guide will provide you with the safety equipment you need, give a quick briefing, then lead you aboard the glacier bus. This modified vehicle can escort you through some gorgeous wilderness to the little-known Falljokull ice tongue, where the true adventure begins.
Nothing compares to the experience of hiking a glacier. The endless terrain of gleaming white snow; the blade-like ridges; the crystal clear streams; the noisy, churning crevasses; the towering ice walls; the sculpted formations; the shades of blue you have never imagined possible in nature: all are mesmerizing to behold. On top of this, the views of Skaftafell from the slopes are simply magnificent.
You’ll spend about two hours hiking, learning from your guide about how such phenomena formed and how they can be best protected. Worry not about other guests interrupting your questions or dominating the attention of your expert due to the small size of your group.
After your exploration is complete, you’ll return to your van for a drive back to base camp, where you’ll give back the equipment and be ready to continue a day of adventure!
Marvel over the glacier of Falljokull in Iceland without worrying about the needs of other travelers with this hiking adventure for just up to eight people. Check availability by choosing a date.
