Meet your guide in Hólmur for the 5-mile (9-km) drive to Vatnajökull National Park. Upon reaching the base of Fláajökull, snap on your provided helmet and crampons and follow your expert guide across Iceland’s glaciated landscape that connects with Vatnajökull’s stunning ice cave.
This small-group hike takes roughly an hour with an approximate 524 feet (160 meters) of elevation gain. Along the way, hear informative commentary on the glacier’s geological history and its development during the last century.
Once inside the ice cave you’ll have 30 to 40 minutes to spend, so don’t forget your camera! Afterward, you're driven back to Hólmur.
