Tour description

If you are looking for an adventure that you will never forget, then the Skaftafell Adventure Glacier Hike is your best choice.

Our meeting point for the Skaftafell Glacier Adventure is at Skaftafell Terminal Tour Center. After getting geared up and a short drive through the wonderful landscape that Skaftafell has to offer, we arrive at our destination, Falljökull. At the glacier terminus, we equip our gear and your guide will explain all about how to use the provided glacier gear. As we start hiking on the glacier, we will quickly pass through the so called “glacier highway”, the route most short tours take, and enter into the less crowded part. When we get closer to the icefall, your true adventure starts. With no fixed routes your experienced guide will safely lead you through crystal clear water streams, blue water pools, and majestic ice formations. The adventure hike allows for plenty of time for you to ask your guide about glacier or Iceland- related questions, and take amazing pictures. When we are high up in the ice fall, we will take a short lunch break with the most stunning view possible. Don’t forget to pack a light lunch. After regaining some energy, we will start making our way back down and drive back to the Skaftafell Terminal.
