  • Vatnajokull Glacier
    You want to hike further into the glacier than most of the other tours do. You are hoping to get close to the ice fall of Falljökull, outlet glacier of Vatnajökull (the largest glacier in Europe). You wish to have a breathtaking view on the crevasses. This is tour is made for you than! We will drive you all the way to the glacier, teach you how to put on crampons and how to use an ice axe and then we will guide you through the labyrint of crevasses, moulins and water streams of the glacier. We are not gonna rush our way to the ice fall, so you will have time to get used to walking on crampons. We will do many stops on the way to explain all about how glaciers are formed, about their history and also a little bit about the area of Skaftafell and Örævi. Of course the guide will assist you with taking many photos from this adventure.
