Skaftafell Glacier Adventure
If you want to hike further into the glacier than most of the other tours do. If you are hoping to get close to the ice fall of Falljökull, outlet glacier of Vatnajökull (the largest glacier in Europe). If you wish to have a breathtaking view over the crevasses. Then this is tour is made for you! We will drive you all the way to the glacier in our 4×4 truck, teach you how to put on crampons, how to use an ice axe and then we will guide you through the labyrinth of crevasses, moulins and water streams of the glacier. We are not gonna rush our way to the ice fall, so you will have time to get used to walking on the crampons. We will do many stops on the way to explain all about how glaciers are formed, about their history and also a little bit about the area of Skaftafell and Öræfi. Of course the guide will assist you with taking many photos from this adventure.
