Frequently asked questions

What is the best way of travelling to Skaftafell from Reykjavik?

The best and most comfortable way to travel to Skaftafell is to rent a car or to join a tour. A taxi to Skaftafell would be very expensive as the area is about 290 km (180 mi) from Reykjavík. A ride with a bus requires frequent stops, you would have to switch buses multiple times, and stay overnight as the buses only depart once a day. Therefore, renting a car or joining a tour is the best travel option.

How far is Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon from Skaftafell?

Jokulsarlon is around 55 km (34 mi) away from Skaftafell.

I want to do a glacier hike, but Skaftafell is far away from Reykjavik where I am staying. Can you help?

The best idea would be to do a glacier hike on Sólheimajökull glacier which is closer to Reykjavik.

I am going on a glacier hiking tour, what should I wear?

You should wear warm and waterproof clothes and good hiking boots or shoes. Both are essential, especially as the crampons will be fitted directly to the bottom of your boots.

Can I rent hiking shoes for the glacier hike?

Yes, you can rent these directly from the tour provider.
