Glacier Discovery

TOUR DESCRIPTION

We start with a drive as close as we can to the base to one of the glacier outlets of Vatnajökull glacier in a 4×4 superjeep. From there we take a hike through glacier moraines to the tip of the glacier where we will have a short safety briefing and put on our crampons, from there we will begin our journey onto the ice.

While on the glacier hike we will tell you about the geology, geography and history of the local area and point out the interesting charestaristics of the ice.This tour is designed for those looking for an in depth glacier hike in Iceland. It is perfect for those who have been on a glacier before, or who enjoy long hikes, or just looking for a bit of adventure! The glacier surface and colour changes constantly depending on the time of year, features such as Moulins, caves and tunnels come and go. We will find different features to explore depending on the season, but one thing never changes; it is always an incredible experience glacier hiking in Iceland.
