Glacier Adventure Summer Tour – Glacier Walk and Ice Exploring


It is a full day glacier walk with ice-climbing. This tour is more adventurous, it’s a small glacier-expedition and you spend more time on the glacier. You’ll try some ice climbing and get the chance of being lowered in a blue moulin and climb back up secured in a line. No experience is needed as our guides will teach you everything needed. The ice climbing is optional, no one will be forced to do it.

You spend about 4-5 hours on the glacier, walking and exploring all the magical glacier features. Remember to bring your lunch with you.

This tour is rated moderate. The age limit is 14 years old.

Amphibian Boat Tout on Glacier Lagoon

 

We offer exciting boat trips on the lagoon in one of our four amphibian boats. During the excursion you sail among the huge icebergs in the picturesque scenery of Jökulsárlón.  On the boat you get to taste the 1000 year old ice and if you are lucky you might even see some seals.

The excursion takes 30–40 minutes and includes an English speaking guide who explains to you the geology and facts of the lagoon. Other languages may be offered upon request

 

Glacier Adventure summer tour:   When exploring the glacier we often find small ice caves and ice tunnels.  Those ice caves and ice tunnels are formed when melt water from the glacier melts during the summer. If we have any of these formations when you visit the glacier.  Glacier Adventure will take you to explore those glacier features.

Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that you will always see an Ice cave in this tour. Your AIMG certified glacier guide will do his/her best to show you one of these amazing formations.

We will visit Breiðamerkurjökull, one of Vatnajökull biggest outlet glaciers.  This outlet glacier formed lagoon jökulsárlón and is in the Vatnajökull National Park.

The tour starts from Glacier Adventures bace camp in Hali. From there we drive our super jeeps to the edge of the glacier. The drive takes about 30 minutes. From the parking lot, we hike about 1 km to the glacier.  There we put on the glacier gear for the glacier hike and get introduced to the equipment.   Crampons make your glacier hike in Iceland easier and safe to explore. Other safety items include harnesses, helmets, and ice axe.

This glacier tour is between 4-5 hours on the glacier, exploring and walking the magical glacier features. Remember to bring good lunch pack with you.

This tour is rated moderate. The age limit is 14 years old.
There will be enough time for great photo opportunities. The tour can take between 5 – 6 hours.
