A bit more about our day tours.

Approximately 11% of Iceland is covered with glaciers and Iceland is probably the best place in the world to see these frozen giants. The biggest glaciers in Iceland are also the easiest to reach from the capital Reykjavík since there is only about two hours drive to the fourth biggest one in the south of Iceland.

Icelandic Mountain Guides Glacier Day Tours give a chance to view, feel and even taste these spectacular phenomena. It might be your last chance since this is probably their last century. Since glaciers all over the world have been slowly shrinking and thinning as the climate warms up.
