About the tour

Skaftafell Glacier Hike

Explore Vatnajökull Glacier with a Certified Glacier Guide

This glacier hiking adventure gives you an extraordinary chance to look at an icefall cascading down from a 2000 m high caldera up close. The only way to fully appreciate the force and size of it is to be right beneath it. Departing from Skaftafell we drive our bus to the front of Falljokull glacier (Falling Glacier) where we start our adventure with a walk along a winding path through the ever-changing landscape carved out by the glacier. Arriving at the glacier tongue we will gear up with crampons and after a quick safety briefing and a little practice, we head up towards the icefall. With your guide leading the way you will soon be exploring a dramatic terrain, walking through a wonderland of ice formations and brilliant blue colors. You will have plenty of time to take in the vast panoramic views of the surrounding mountains as we make our way to the rugged and icefall.
