Activities Glacier Tours
Short Glacier Tour
Iceland Glacier Walk, Skaftafell, Vatnajökull National Park, Iceland
The Iceland Glacier Walk is the perfect tour for those who have limited time or wish to experience the beauty of an Icelandic glacier and still have enough time for other activities that same day.
The Iceland Glacier Walk begins with a hike on a scenic trail through the green mossy valley and up to the front of the glacier. Once crampons are strapped tight on your boots, you will be able to easily walk on the ice. Heading up the glacier, you will enjoy the stunning views surrounding you from all angles. Whilst keeping you safe, the guides will also be on the lookout for interesting ice formations for you to photograph and admire. You will learn how the glacier and its formations are created and why Vatnajökull is a very unique place. Whilst walking at a relaxing pace you will eventually complete a loop on the ice and then safely return to the starting point.
The Iceland Glacier Walk is a great introduction to an Icelandic glacier and suitable for most people with approximately two hours spent on the ice.
