This unique expedition combines both glacier hiking and ice climbing. If you want to experience one of the natural wonders of the blue ice while working out, this is the perfect adventure for you!

You will meet your experienced guide at Skaftafell Information Centre Parking lot and from there you will be driven to the root of Svínafellsjökull, which is an outlet glacier of the Vatnajökull Ice Cap. The glacier is a part of the tallest mountain range in Iceland, and the highest peak in the country, Hvannadalshnúkur is easily seen from the glacier in a clear sky.

Before stepping on the ice, your guide will gear you up and provide you with the necessary safety equipment needed for this glacier expedition and teach you how it’s used.

During the glacier walk, you will be exploring the breathtaking ice formations and moulins while learning how they are formed and constantly change. You will also be able to attempt to conquer gravity when you get the chance to climb up the ice walls with ice axes and crampons. You will be in the safe hands of our experienced guides who will make sure the experience will be both safe and enjoyable, giving you instructions on the technical aspects of ice climbing through a step by step approach.

Never been on a glacier walk before? Never used crampons or ice axe? No worries! Experienced guides will teach you all you need to know and have you walking safely on the glacier in no time. Safety equipment and briefings are provided before each tour. Nature is best experienced free of worries!

Make sure you sign up for this unforgettable experience. Let yourself be amazed by the breathtaking scenery while getting to know Svínafellsjökull Glacier, up close and personal.
