Day tours around Skaftafell National Park

The country's highest peak, Hvannadalshnúkur, rises majestically to 2110M (6920 feet) in the background. The Park's camping site is the point of departure for our multiple day tours as well as for other climbing and hiking activities. Participants staying at Hotel Skaftafell and other accommodations in the vicinity can be picked up on their request.

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.
