What to Expect
Enjoy an action-packed day of adventure walking on the glaciers of Iceland’s Vatnajökull National Park and Skaftafell. Then, continue to the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon on Breiðamerkursandur and take a boat cruise through mighty icebergs
This amazing 16- to 17-hour adventure tour explores the largest glacier in Europe. You will drive along the south coast on the Skaftafell Express Coach. At the national park in Skaftafell you will hike on the glacier itself and experience the spectacular ice formations, deep sink holes, and rugged ice crevasses.
Your guide will kit you out with crampons and brief you on how to negotiate the glaciers. High above the outlet, the massive Vatnajökull glacier rises in all its magnificence, a sight not soon forgotten.
From Virkisjökull, continue to the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon on Breiðamerkursandur, one of the absolute must-sees in Iceland. And there is no better way to explore it than on one of the strange looking amphibian boats. Glide between huge icebergs, which constantly break away from the glacier tongue of Breiðamerkurjökull.
