Once our crampons are strapped on tight we begin to head up the glacier, enjoying the stunning views as we go. Whilst keeping you safe we will also be on the lookout for interesting ice formations for you to photograph and admire. We take the time to explain how the glacier and its formations are created and why Vatnajökull is a very unique place.
