COVID-19 – Book Now Pay Later Option
Dear Guest, we understand that COVID – 19 makes it very difficult to invest in future travel plans and we at Glacier Adventure want to do our best to help ease that burden. We are rolling on option that allows our guests to make a booking, via email, which will reserve your spot without the requirement to pay at the time of booking. All you have to do is send an e-mail to [email protected] let us know which tour you would like to attend, what date, time and number of guests. When you arrive at our meeting point you would pay for the tour at our meeting point in the small town of Hali. We look forward to seeing you.
When you book this combo tour, you start with the 09.00 o’clock Glacier Walk, after the glacier walk you have around an hour to get to the next tour, which is the 14.00 o’clock Snowmobiling tour with Glacier Jeeps.
When you join Glacier Adventure for a Glacier Walk you will get a personal experience from a local guide. You experience the wonders of Vatnajökull glacier and it‘s uniqueness while being away from the crowds.
Our guide takes you on an unforgettable journey on Breiðamerkurjökull, one of Vatnajökull biggest outlet glaciers. The trip starts at Hali where our meeting point is. From there the guide drives you to the glacier area, off the beaten path where you can breathe in the fresh Icelandic air.
The tour can take between 3,5 and 4 hours (1 – 1,5 hours on the glacier), including drive back and forth from our meeting point. This tour is rated easy and can be done by most children and adults.
Minimum age is 10 years old
Snowmobiling on a Glacier is a must-do thing when traveling in Iceland. This tour will give you the change to ride your own snowmobile on Vatanjökull Glacier. While on this tour you will enjoy the beautiful wintery scenery, even during summer.
The tour is suitable for everyone, literally, there is no age limit. The duration of the program is around 3-3,5 hours, including preparations. The riding time on the snowmobiles is 60 minutes.
First, we drive on our Super Jeeps on road F985 towards the glacier and then we continue on our Skidoo snowmobiles where we have breathtaking views of Vatnajökull. Two adults ride on one snowmobile. To get a single snowmobile you have to pay extra.
All of the tours are led by local and professional guides to give you a safe and unforgettable experience in the breathtaking Vatnajökull nature.
