Description

A year round glacier tour that is short on time but big on adventure in Skaftafell. Discover why glacier walks are one of the most popular outdoor activities in Iceland. 

During this easy Glacier Walk , you will go on a short exploration of a stunning outlet glacier in Skaftafell. This icy giant is a breathtaking outlet glacier that extends from the mighty Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Europe. Your adventure starts off with meeting your certified and experienced glacier guide in Skaftafell. Your guide will instruct you on how to use the basic and required glacier equipment that we provide, like crampons and an ice axe. Once you step onto the ice field it will feel as if you have been transported to an icy, foreign planet. As you walk through a wonderland of glacial ice sculptures, ice ridges and deep crevasses on the glacier, you will witness stunning scenery as far as the eye can see. Don’t miss the opportunity to see this glacial wonderland in person.

*Due to safety reasons, we are currently not operating glacier tours on Svínafellsjökull glacier. Other beautiful glacier outlets will be explored in the meantime.

*The Skaftafell parking lot fee is not included in the tour price.
