Description

This amazing adventure tour will take you into the Vatnajökull National Park in South East Iceland and onto the largest glacier in Europe. We will drive along the South Coast on the Skaftafell Express Coach and start our adventure on the Falljökull Glacier. There we will go for an scenic hike on the glacier and feel the ancient ice under our feet and all around. High above us on the outlet rises the massive Vatnajökull glacier in all its magnificence, a sight not soon forgotten.

Walking on crampons (metal spikes for the soles of our shoes) we safely walk on the ice and along the way we see spectacular ice formations, deep sink holes and rugged ice crevasses. Our specially trained, highly qualified glacier guides will tell you all about the Vatnajökull Glacier and the rough outlet glaciers, that like the Falljökull, descend from the main hub, towards the ocean.

From Falljökull we continue on wards and onto the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon on Breiðamerkursandur. This place is one of the absolute must sees and there is no better way to explore it then on a 45 minute amphibian boat ride. We´ll find ourselves gliding between huge icebergs, which constantly break away from the glacier tongue of Breiðamerkurjökull, producing a wonder world of ice, hard to describe with words.
