This glacier tour is operated by our friends at Fjallsárlón!

Each boat can accommodate two persons in a double bed. The boats are designed with comfort and style in mind. Glass walls and glass ceiling offer an exceptional view from inside. The boats are fitted with a composting toilet, small kitchenette, electricity, and Wi-Fi. Please note that there are no shower facilities available on location.

Check-in is at 18:00 (later check-in is 15.000 ISK each extra hour). Check-out is at 09:00 AM. Please note that the transport during summer to and from the boat is by a Zodiac Boat (approx. 10 minutes each way) depending on location of the huts. The hut floats on the lagoon so you will not be able to go on land during your stay. During winter the huts will be located on the ice and the transport by a 4×4 vehicle. Age limit is 20 years old.

We recommend that guests have dinner before arriving. During summer appreciate the 24-hour daylight and throughout spring and autumn admire the pristine landscape as twilight falls. During winter enjoy stargazing and search for Northern lights from inside the warmth of the hut.

Aurora Hut is a ground-breaking eco-friendly boat with glass walls and ceiling that can be easily moved from one place to another.

The comfortable, and modern hut can be moved across ice, snow or even water without impacting the nature or surrounding area. We are therefore able to situate them on the glacier lagoon where there will be no light pollution, away from other travellers and traffic.

Please note that the overnight adventure is not considered to be your normal accommodation or a hotel but a real Icelandic adventure.

All tours are taken at the responsibility of participants. Glacier Adventure does not take responsibility for accidents which are caused by their customers or can be traced to their own actions.
