Come along on an exciting adventure where you'll travel up Europe's largest glacier, Vatnajökull, on a snowcat or a jeep. Those who want to pack their day with excitement and do more than just sightseeing should book this tour now.

You will meet your guides on location in South East Iceland, before hopping into a glacier jeep, capable of handling this volcanic island's challenging terrain. You will travel through the countryside of Suðursveit, then begin to ascend the mighty Vatnajökull glacier on road F985 where movies and TV shows, such as Batman Begins, James Bond, Tomb Raider, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Game of Thrones, have been filmed.

Vatnajökull is centrally located near some of the most beautiful sites in the region. On a bright day, you might even see the highest peak in Iceland, Hvannadalshnjúkur. Under the ice cap are valleys, mountains as well as active volcanoes. 

Depending on the weather, you will either continue onto the glacier on your large glacier jeep, which can easily climb up snow-covered hills with a little help from your expert driver who is more than willing to share his knowledge of the glacier and region. Alternatively, you will leave the jeep behind in exchange for a snowcat with its tank-style tracks. 

On the glacier, you can explore the vast, white emptiness of the ice and snow. There are few things more thrilling than racing over the mounds of snow, whooshing over the icy hills of Europe´s largest glacier. 

You'll have the opportunity to get out and stand on the ancient ice with a volcano beneath your feet and unbelievable views in front of you. You'll see mountains, deep valleys, Iceland's interior and the beautiful South East region all around you. So don't forget your camera!

Don’t miss the chance to explore the magnificent and beautiful Vatnajökull glacier. Join this tour now for an unforgettable experience in South East Iceland! Check availability by choosing a date.
