Discover what it feels like to walk on impacted ice on an amazing hike across tan outlet glacier of Vatnajökull, Europe's largest glacier. Get breathtaking views of the ice-covered peaks of Skaftafell National Park in the epic wilderness of Iceland. Meet your guide at the Skaftafell visitor center to pick-up your crampons, ice axes, harnesses and helmets. Then, drive by bus to the start of your hike and put on your crampons and steel frames tied to your hiking boots for the amazing adventure ahead. Spend around 60 to 90 minutes on the ice to see crevasses and deep cracks on the surface.

Look into small ice tunnels and capture the beautiful blue heart of the ice in the winter. Learn the history of the glacier from your English-speaking guide.
Highly recommend this glacier hiking tour! Erica, our tour guide, was super knowledgeable and wonderful ! Even though it was rainy and cloudy when the hike started, the sun came out halfway through and we saw the most incredible up-close views of the glacier and surrounding valleys. Unforgettable!

Vom Anfang bis zum Schluss gut organisierte und gut durchgeführte Tour! Anna hat uns perfekt durchgeführt und betreut- ja sie hat uns sogar ein Lied in echter „Wikingersprache“ vorgesungen Die Locations waren wunderschön, einfach nichts zu meckern und nur zu empfehlen! Ich habe vor dieser Tagestour einen Reiturlaub auf Islandpferden gemacht, also hat mir das Sitzen im Bus sehr gut gepasst nach all den Tölt- Strapazen
Head along the beautiful south shore of Iceland to the extraordinary glacial lagoon, Jökulsárlón, on this full-day tour. Pass some charming villages as well as Skaftafell National Park and visit Seljalandsfoss waterfall and Skógarfoss waterfall. Just before you reach the lagoon, you'll pass Iceland’s biggest volcano, Öræfajökull glacier which has the highest peak of the island, Hvannadalshnjúkur. (2110 m). After arriving at the lagoon, enjoy some time to view this stunning area. Take a walk along the shore and admire the icebergs.

Our guide Matt was amazing! The most intelligent and funny guid that we have had in Iceland so far. Our bus driver Kal was also amazing. We chose to skip coffee and see some extra sights and it was sooo worth it. It’s a long day but I learned more in this trip than any where else while in this country! The lagoon boat is a must don’t skip it. The waterfalls are also incredible! All the glaciers were more exciting because Matt knew everything about every single one. I appreciate that he enjoys his job so much. His passion is intoxicating.
Informative. Well organized. But if u have a child, it will be better to book another one. There is a lot of tours where u shouldn't pay for children.
Everything was well organized and the guide told interesting things about the formation of the glaciers and was also in a good mood;)
Wonderful excursion, the guide Marcelo really nice and incredibly prepared. A great experience!
It was amazing to see the icebergs and the glaciar, although it is really far away!!
