This is our special, summer-only tour, where you will be heading up to the glacier when most other tours are already walking back down. You will be able to enjoy the beauty of the glaciers mostly undisturbed by other larger groups. Come enjoy the long magical summer evenings with us.
Like with our other tours, the meeting place is at Skaftafell Terminal Tour Center, where we will provide you with all the necessary glacier equipment. Then, we will start driving through the beautiful scenery that Skaftafel has to offer, towards the majestic Falljökull outlet glacier. As we drive all the way into the glacier valley in our modified 4×4 truck, you will enjoy the stunning views of the glacier that you will soon be hiking on. After reaching the glacier, your guide will assist and explain how to use all the provided equipment, and then you are ready to start your glacier hike! As we walk up through the other worldly ice formations, your guide will share with you their knowledge of the glaciers and surrounding area.

Reviews from our guests
Evening tour on the glacier - an unforgettable experience
Found the brochure on a local brewery in Vík and thought that it looked really good. We decided to try their evening tour the same day as it promised something different from the daily tours filled with other tour operators and tourists. And we got exactly that; an evening on the glacier with our guide Oddur and no one else. It was just amazing being able to walk between and on the glacier.
Can highly recommend booking a tour with Oddur and Katerina, both are very talkative and friendly! Plus they provided us with some recommendations for different hiking trails and sights….
Amazing walk on glacier!
Our guide Odur was really helpful and he took a very good care of us. He explained a lot of things about glacier and he answered to all of our questions, about Skaftafell Glacier and Iceland in general. The Skaftafell Evening Glacier Walk itself was a breathtaking experience, the views are outstanding
We felt safe and supported every step of the way! We will never forget this experience! We are really grateful to Melrakki Adventures for making glacier adventure possible!
Impressive glacier hike tour
We highly recommend this tour! Starting our trip at the Skaftafell Terminal we got first all required equipment and went by 4×4 Defender to the glacier. Our guide Katerina told us a lot of interesting facts about the glacier and showed us fantastic views. We had a lot of fun, enjoyed the hike and took a lot of pictures.
Many thanks to Katerina and Oddur for this great tour!
