  • Tour Description

    Walk on Svinafellsjokull Glacier Tongue in Skaftafell National Park, an easy 2 hour walk on crampons.

    This walk takes us on to the Svínafellsjökull glacier tongue. Svínafellsjökull is a breathtaking outlet glacier of the Vatnajökull glacier and the scenery and views are simply stunning. We walk through a wonderland of glacial ice sculptures, meandering through ice ridges and the deep crevasses of the glacier. At the outset of our tour, an experienced guide teaches you how to use basic glacier equipment like crampons and ice axes, the required equipment for this tour.

    Price for children (8-15): 5.950 ISK
