Glacier Hiking Day Trips From Reykjavík & Skaftafell in Iceland
With almost 25 years of adventure travel and activity operating under our belt we finally feel like we have a complete offering of glacier trips in Iceland. Over the years we explored countless glacier plateaus, summited endless mountains and hiked many breathtaking outlet glaciers in our search for the ultimate glacier trips the island has to offer.
We now operate glacier trips from Reykjavik and from Skaftafell further along the South Coast.
From Reykjavik we can take you on the Sólheimajökull for a glacier hike and introduction to ice climbing, this is our ultimate best seller! Available almost every day, all year round, there is just no excuse from not visiting an Icelandic glacier.
Other very popular glacier trips that require more experience in hiking and are in essence more mountain climbing trips, are: Snæfellsjökull Glacier Hike and Eyjafjallajökull Glacier Hike (which is only for very experienced hikers).
From Skaftafell under the Vatnajökull glacier (Europe´s biggest glacier) we operate some of the most amazing glacier hikes and climbs you will find in the World (yes we are serious, this is something very, very special).
We offer indepth glacier exploration trips on the Fjallsjökull located right next to the Glacier Lagoon of Jökulsárlón. You can also combine both adventures into one, it is rightly so named the Glacier Grand Slam.
In Skaftafell you can also visit the Virkisjökull only minutes from the National Park Service Terminal and get up close and personal with an actual ice fall, an outlet glacier crashing down a 800 meter high mountain.
We also offer an amazing combination trip that includes glacier hiking and bird watching on the Ingólfshöfði Cape, as before, rightly named the Blue Ice & Black Sands.
And to top it of we offer the very demanding hike to the Hvannadalshnúkur on the Öræfajökull, giving those with strong legs and thirst for adventure a chance to stand on Iceland´s highest peak. This is our legendary trip White Giant.
