Description

This incredible adventure will take you into the Vatnajökull National Park in South East Iceland and onto the biggest glacier in Europe. We will drive along the South Coast on the Skaftafell Express Coach and have lunch at the national park entrance before starting our adventure on the Virkisjökull Glacier. There, we will go for an exploratory hike on the glacier itself and feel the ancient ice under our feet and all around. High above us on the outlet glacier looms the massive Vatnajökull glacier in all its grandeur, a sight not easily forgotten.

Geared with our crampons (metal spikes for the soles of our shoes), we will safely walk on the ice. Along the way we will witness spectacular ice formations, winding sink holes and deep ice crevasses. Our specially trained, highly qualified glacier guides will tell you all about the Vatnajökull Glacier and the rough outlet glaciers, those like the Virkisjökull, descend from the main hub and towards the ocean.

From Virkisjökull, we will continue onwards and onto the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon on Breiðamerkursandur. This place is one of the absolute must sees and there is no better way to explore it than on one of the strange looking amphibian boats. We'll find ourselves gliding between huge icebergs, which constantly break away from the glacier tongue of Breiðamerkurjökull, producing a wonderworld of ice that is difficult to describe with words. After our boat ride, we will stop for coffee and a warm Icelandic waffle with cream and jam before starting our journey back to Reykjavík.
