Glacier Encounter

Vatnajokull, Iceland

Vatnajokull, Iceland


This tour will start with a short drive from our base to Falljokull glacier, which is a neighboring glacier outlet descending from the vast Vatnajokull ice cap
. 


At the edge of the glacier, you will learn to put on crampons and have a small safety briefing. With an ice ax at hand, we will then embark on a one hour guided excursion on the glacier. 

Your guide will be pointing out some of the fascinating features of the ice while on the hike and teaching you about some of the local geography and history. 

The glacier surface and color change a lot depending on the time of year, but summer is the perfect time to get up on the ice and explore.
