Immerse yourself in the natural wonders of Iceland's Skaftafell National Park on this extended glacier hiking tour, which allows more time on this glacier than most other tours. As you hike over the ice, past deep crevasses, pale moulins, and ice sculptures, and take in panoramic views over the park, your guide shares insights into glaciers, how they are formed and impacted by climate change. Includes all necessary safety gear.
Please note that is is a challenging tour with 5 hours of hike. Getting to the Ice Cave is challenging, but the reward is equally great! On this tour, you will go further than other glacier hiking tours go. You will traverse the Falljökull outlet glacier and visit a unique and natural ice cave, only accessible to those in the company of an experienced glacier guide. With a maximum group size of 8 participants, we can guarantee an amazing and personal experience on the glacier. The tour begins at Skaftafell Base Camp where you will board the Glacier Bus, taking you to the glacier terminal face. You will be fitted with all necessary glacier gear, free of charge. After a short hike to the edge of the glacier, you start your way traversing the magnificent glacier tongue, full of deep crevasses, amazing ice formations and deep water cauldrons. When you reach the cave, you will have enough time to get all the photos you want, before you head back over the glacier to the bus.
The Laki Craters are famous for their beauty, but getting there is famously difficult. A guided Jeep tour makes it possible to see the craters safely, with all transportation provided by specialty Jeeps engineered for Iceland’s rugged environment. After a hike through the glaciers, continue on a second hike to the Tjarnargígur pond crater, explore hidden waterfalls, and visit the beautiful Fjadrargljufur Canyon before returning to your Kirkjubæjarklaustur hotel.
