What You'll Do
  • Glide between towering icebergs as you boat through the breathtaking Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon

Overview
Walk on the ancient glacial ice of South East Iceland on this hiking day tour to Vatnajökull National Park and the Vatnajökull Glacier. See icebergs, crevasses, and sink holes before boating out to see the amazing views on the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon.
What to Expect
This incredible adventure will take you into the Vatnajökull National Park in South East Iceland and onto the biggest glacier in Europe.

Drive along the South Coast on the Skaftafell Express Coach and have lunch at the National Park entrance before heading out onto the Virkisjökull Glacier. Go for an exploratory hike on the glacier itself and admire the sight of massive Vatnajökull glacier looming above you.

Using crampons–metal spikes attached to the soles of the shoes–safely walk on the ice and view the spectacular ice formations, sink holes, and deep ice crevasses. Your specially trained, highly qualified glacier guides will tell you all about the Vatnajökull Glacier and the rough outlet glaciers reaching for the ocean, like the Virkisjökul.

From Virkisjökull continue on to the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon on Breiðamerkursandur. Board a special amphibian boat to see the amazing ice formations from the water. Glide between huge icebergs, which constantly break away from the glacier tongue of Breiðamerkurjökull, and marvel at this icy wonderland.

After the boat ride, stop for coffee and a warm Icelandic waffle with cream and jam before starting the journey back to Reykjavík.
