This meet-at-locations tour combines our most popular glacier walk, the Blue Ice Experience, with an amazing iceberg boat tour on the Fjallsárlón glacier lagoon.
You start your combo experience at Skaftafell, meeting your certified glacier guide for the glacier walk twenty minutes before, at our Sales Base next to the National Park Visitor Centre. Your guide will fit you with appropriate gear for the glacier, such as a harness, ice axe and crampons. During your Glacier Walk on the outlet glacier, you will witness a wonderland of ridges, crevasses and ice formations.
After your glacier hike, you will make your way to Fjallsárlón Glacier Lagoon by your own means. The drive to Fjallsárlón from Skaftafell takes approx. 40 minutes (see map on voucher).
You meet the Zodiac team at Fjallsárlón who will suit you up for the boat tour at the time on your voucher, and when everyone is ready, you will head out onto the lagoon. The small and agile Zodiac boats give you a chance to sail right next to the most interesting icebergs. You will get up close to the massive icefall of Fjallsjökull glacier terminal face. If you are lucky, you might get to see a piece break off the edge of the glacier into the lagoon.
Both tours are operated by professional guides and guarantee a small-group experience. If you are looking for a day packed with adventure in Vatnajökull National Park at a discounted price, this is the tour for you!
There, your Zodiac Adventure boat awaits you for a boat tour in iceberg filled waters. starts approx. 1.5-2 hours after you finish your glacier walk, giving you enough time to have lunch between tours. The restaurant Frost at Fjallsárlón Base offers a good selection of home cooked dishes, sandwiches and soup if you need to buy lunch before your iceberg boat tour.
