Experience the mighty Vatnajökull, the biggest glacier in Europe. On this extended half-day tour we head higher up on the outlet glacier Falljökull, named for its incredible blue icefall.
We depart from our meeting point at Freysnes Service station with all necessary glacier gear. After a super-jeep ride, which we carbon offset, we put on our crampons by the glacier’s edge, grab our ice axe and begin the ascent over 300 meters up towards the ice fall. Surrounded by blue ice and peaks carved by glaciers we will have our eyes peeled for crevasses, moulins, waterfalls and any other fun features that spring up in the dynamic glacial landscape.
During the hike your guide will tell you about the geography and history of the area, and explain glacial features.
This tour is for those looking for an in-depth glacier experience in Iceland, perfect for those who enjoy long hikes, or just looking for a bit of an adventure.
