This glacier walk is an extra small group version of our ever-popular Blue Ice Experience. With only 8 participants in each group, we can guarantee a personal experience and memories that will last a lifetime.
In this 3.5 hour glacier walk, we will explore one of Vatnajökull Glacier's many outlet glaciers and experience everything this frozen wonderland has to offer.
Before heading to the glacier, you will meet your expert glacier guide at our Skaftafell Base Camp, located on the campsite of Skaftafell National Park. We provide all technical gear needed for a glacier walk, an ice ax, harness, and a helmet. Then, when everyone is ready, we will take off to the glacier on our Glacier bus.
There is a short hike from the glacier parking lot to the edge of the glacier, and before stepping on the ice, your guide will go over all the basics for glacier travel.
Finally, we step onto the glacier and into another world, the unique landscape of deep crevasses, ridges, small rivers, and other glacial formations. In a small group, your guide will be able to provide a personalized experience, leading you safely through the ever-changing landscape for approximately 2 hours on the glacier.
