A Great Expedition
Skaftafell Glacier Hike
The Skaftafell Glacier Hike is a proper glacier adventure! If you would love to explore an Icelandic glacier with an adventurous and more challenging approach the Skaftafell Glacier Hike is the perfect trip for you.
Often the most interesting and beautiful glacier features require a few kilometres of hiking to reach them. Ideally one needs to allocate a full day of their holiday itinerary to visiting an Icelandic glacier. This gives you more than enough time to experience the glacier without rushing and provides the opportunity for you to hike “off the beaten path”.
You will spend approximately 5 hours on the ice with Skaftafell Long Glacier Hike which provides opportunities to search for new ice features, focus on photography, try ice climbing, access and hike though exciting terrain with the support of ropes for safety, chat in-depth about Vatnajökull National Park and much more!
Regardless of whether you prefer to take a nice long relaxed tour with plenty of time for chatting, photography and snack breaks or if you are after a more physically-challenging style of expedition with ice climbing and adrenaline laced into the exploration, we can make it happen on the Skaftafell Glacier Hike!
