Your adventure begins at the tour operator's booking hut in Skaftafell National Park, where you’ll meet your guide in time for an 8.15am start. After a safety briefing, get suited up in your crampons and glacial hiking gear, and travel by bus to the starting point of your hike, a 15-minute drive from the hut.
Arrive at the foot of the Falljökull Glacier, a glacier tongue of the famous Vatnajökull, Europe’s largest glacier, and set out through the glacier valley. Follow your guide on an exhilarating hike around crevasses and glacier mills, trekking along shimmering fields of ice, and gazing up at dramatic cliffs of ice. There’s no need to worry if you’ve never used crampons or tried ice hiking before – your guide will explain everything you need to know and you’ll soon get the hang of it!
After a 1.5-hour hike, return to the booking hut, and continue in your own vehicle to the Fjallsárlón lagoon, around 40 minutes drive. Then, jump aboard for an unforgettable boat ride around the glacier lagoon, cruising past towering icebergs and gazing out over the icy landscapes of the surrounding glacier.
Please note: This tour is best suited to participants with their own transport - travelers must provide their own transportation from Skaftafell to Fjallsárlón lagoon.
