Day one across Vatnajokull glacier was good we made it on the super jeep from Reykjavik in 4 hours to Vatnajokull glacier. Atli Pálsson made it 14 km on this first day of the crossing. Conditions were good new snow but not too deep. Tomorrow they need to finish another 28 km all the way to Grímsfjall mountain hut, where a warm hut and sauna is waiting for the group. Last night was cold on the glacier with -25 but not to much wind.
