Description

Join us for this glacier walk, Iceland's most popular outdoor activities, into the magnificent ice-world of Vatnajökull glacier, the largest glacier in Europe. Your certified glacier guide will introduce you to the basics of glacier hiking while you witness stunning scenery as far as the eye can see astonishing ice formations.

You will come on a hiking expedition to an outlet glacier on part of the biggest glacier in Europe, Vatnajökull, and have your mind blown away by the breath-taking views to the ice covered highest peaks of Iceland rising more than 2,000 meters (6.500 ft) over your helmet! The glacier tongues and their spectacular landscape has been scenery for dozens of films and TV shows like James Bond, Interstellar, Batman and Game of Thrones. Follow the footsteps of Pierce Brosnan, Matt Damon and Jon Snow.

You will meet your guide at the Skaftafell Visitor Centre and he will provide you with all the equipment you need: crampons, ice axes, harnesses and helmets. Then you will enter the troll bus and drive for about 10 minutes to the car park of the glacier. From there it’s only a 15 minutes walk to the edge of the ice where your guide will show you how to put on the crampons.

You will stay 60 to 90 minutes on the ice itself and see lots of crevasses, deep cracks in the surface of the glacier, and so called moulins, often vertical shafts in the ice which are formed by melting water finding it’s way into fissures and cracks. In the winte
