From Hof: Vatnajökull Glacier Guided Walk & Ice Exploration

4. From Hof: Vatnajökull Glacier Guided Walk & Ice Exploration

Discover the magnificent glaciers of Iceland with an expert instructor and guide and the proper equipment, including crampons. Walk along deep crevasses and moulins and admire variations of blue that you've never seen before. The tour departs from Jökulsárlón and after you get your equipment, crampons, helmet, and a harness head off on an approximately 30-minute super jeep ride on one of Iceland's biggest super jeeps. The super jeep takes your tour group to the base, close to the glacier and from there walk for about 20 minutes until reaching the edge of the glacier. Before stepping a foot on the glacier the guide helps you put on the crampons and goes over the safety restrictions. They also teach you a few things you need to know before walking on a glacier. Spend about an hour and a half on the glacier, exploring its ever-changing landscape and formations. During this tour, you have the possibility to even see crevasses, moulins, and the world-famous glacier wall on Jokulsarlon. Once you hit the ice, you will not only be amazed by the beauty but also mesmerized by the colors and the sounds as the ice beneath your feet crunches. If possible, you might even be able to get a peek at the ice cave, but it depends on its conditions. After the walk on the glacier, head back to the car and to Jökulsárlón. The tour in total takes about 4 hrs. and the walk in total is 6-10 km.

What people are saying about Skaftafell

Very nice excursion on the South coast with many stopping points and a guide open to requests. The trip is still relatively long but it is worth it. Of course, you shouldn't be afraid to go on the road. As an option, we were able to navigate the Loggon de Jokurlasson and marvel at the icebergs.

Fantastic experience! The local guide was really good, he showed us many places not included in the tour and many areas not very touristy. Recommended with flying colors. Ps a little 'difficulty in understanding the English of the guide.

Small bus, small group, the tour was very successful and personal. Pleasant guide, responsive to the needs of the group. Long, intense ride. We have seen a lot. Highlight: Glacier Lagoon and Diamond Coast, uniquely beautiful.

Very informative guide and friendly driver! Loved all the locations and the stories.

Our guide went above and beyond he was excellent Gummi was the best
