On this adventurous day, you will hike beyond the crowds to explore further reaches of an outlet glacier of Vatnajökull.
We have the lowest guest to guide ratio (4:1) on the market, meaning we can deliver high quality hikes that involve more adventure. You could end up discovering temporary features on the glacier that you and no one else has ever ventured into or getting into tight places that larger groups cannot. Expect to learn and use a whole range of crampon techniques to travel safely in technical terrain including the possibility of minor ice climbing if the route requires it.
You'll be informed on the surrounding nature and landscape formation by experienced and knowledgeable guides to make the experience more meaningful and giving you a newfound love of glaciers.
Each of our trips is a unique exploration as routes change often as the glacier melts and evolves.
