Full Day Vatnajökull Glacier Exploration

Full Day Vatnajökull Glacier Exploration

We don't offer easy glacier walking trips, we exclusively offer an adventurous exploration of an outlet glacier of Vatnajökull. Our guide to guest ratio is small, and this lets us deliver a more immersive experience amongst the ice. It's here that you'll hear facts and stories of the geological forces that produced this surreal part of the world. Even though it is not a requirement to have been on a glacier before, maybe this time you want to go further and 'do more'. Our glacier trips are rated as moderately difficulty and require a good level of fitness to be out all day on the move.
