Glacier Adventure is a small family run company. Our company revolves around Europe’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull. All of our tours are operated on and in the glacier.
Our meeting point is at Hali. It is only 12km east of the Glacier Lagoon, Jökulsárlón and 65km west of Höfn, the famous lobster town of Iceland. At Hali we have a hotel, guesthouse, restaurant and even a museum.
There used to be an old milk house located at Hali that we decided to give a makeover. Glacier Adventure made up the old cow milk house and turned it into a brand-new reception.
The old barn used to house about 100 cattle and cows, of which 30 used to be milked there. Not only did we have cows and cattle, but we had sheep and lamb. It was basically a small farm.
We still have the sheep and lamb, but in another barn 😉
In the barn there used to be a pit in the middle of the room where the owners stood while they put the machines on the cows to milk them. We decided not to cover the whole pit because we could use it when we fit crampons on our clients. We have a bench where the clients sit on, there feet dangle in the pit where our guide fits crampons on them.
As you can see on the picture here below.
At our meeting point we have enough of parking space, we have a toilet and a cozy coffee/tea corner. We also sell some snacks, if you maybe forgot food for the tour, even gloves and socks. If you don’t have the right hiking boots with you, you can rent a pair with us for 1000 ISK per person.
This is Steinþór, he is the fifth generation that has lived in Hali. He used to take care of the farm. Now he takes care of the tourist that come to visit us.
As previously mentioned, there is both a hotel and guesthouse at Hali. It is a place where you can easily spend 2 nights at and enjoy many sights from there.
