Ice Cave and Glacier Walk

Ice Cave and Glacier Walk

star-5
Visit a natural ice cave and explore an Icelandic glacier with the opportunity to take as many pictures as you like! Glacial ice caves are a beautiful natural creation and a must-see when visiting the south of Iceland. We take small groups of people on personalised trips into an ice cave which is located in Skaftafell. We provide you with the necessary glacier and safety equipment, then we will walk for about 20 minutes to the front of the glacier, which is where we strap our crampons onto our boots. Once our crampons are on we walk up to the ice cave and spend as much time as you would like in the cave taking pictures and admiring the inside of the glacial ice. Once we have been to the cave we then go and explore further up the glacier where we will encounter the amazing blue colour of the ice and its impressive features. We will complete a loop on the glacier and then return back to where we started from.

Short Glacier Hike

Short Glacier Hike

star-5
The short tour is the perfect tour for those who have limited time or wish to experience the beauty of an Icelandic glacier with a relaxed approach. We begin by providing you with the necessary equipment then we take a scenic walking route through the mossy valley and up to the front of the glacier where we strap crampons onto our boots. 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. The short glacier tour is a great introduction to an Icelandic glacier and suitable for most people as we usually spend approximately two hours on the ice.

Glacier Discovery

Glacier Discovery

The Glacier Discovery tour takes you on a journey towards a majestic glacier ice fall. After a short 4x4 super-jeep drive that brings us very close to the glacier, we will put our crampons on, arm ourselves with ice axes and start our hike up the glacier. The tour is designed for those looking for an in depth glacier hike in Iceland. During this glacier hike your guide will teach you about the geology, geography and history of the local area, as well as pointing out some of the fascinating features of the ice. The glacier surface and colour changes constantly depending on the time of year and features such as Moulins, glacier cones and crevasses come and go. The landscape is one of constant motion, but one thing never changes; what an incredible experience it is to go glacier hiking in Iceland.
