This full-day tour is a great way to experience the natural beauty of Iceland by trying your hand at ice hiking and climbing. The tour begins from authorized pickup points in Reykjavik, where you board your minibus and make the drive to the glacier.
Upon arrival, meet your glacier guide and receive your equipment and a safety briefing. Then, set out on the surface of the glacier’s ice “tongue,” the part that juts from the main body as it crawls toward the ocean. Continue by exploring crevasses, cracks, ridges, and sinkholes with your guide.
Next, climb a sheer ice wall using the gear included with the tour: crampons, ice axes, and safety ropes. Take advantage of the time spent at the top by taking in sublime views.
Get back on the minibus and head back to Reykjavik. Stop at Skogafoss waterfall along the way, and end your tour with a drop-off at your original departure point.
