Experience the best of the mighty Vatnajökull Glacier

 

On this tour we drive as close as we can to the tip of an outlet glacier from the Vatnajökull ice cap.  We hike through glacier moraines and glacier landscape to the tip of the glacier where we will put on crampons. With an ice axe in hand we will take a 3 hour walk onto the glacier.

The glacier surface and color changes a lot depending on the time of year, and we will find different features to explore as the season changes. It is always a wonderful experience to hike on an Icelandic glacier.
