Description

Experience the adrenaline of walking on a glacier and ice climbing in one of the most mesmerizing parts of Iceland, the Skaftafell Glacier, in the Vatnajökull National Park.

Vatnajökull National Park is a wild, yet protected area in southern Iceland. This magnificent park offers some of the most hypnotizing sceneries in the country. Brimming with impressive glaciers, snow capped mountains and ice caves, it is truly a winter paradise worth exploring. Moreover it has many amazing paths with geothermal waters, rivers, glacial lagoons and even majestic waterfalls.

During the summer, the place is covered with a dazzling shade of green and a fresh scent. But, it is during winter, that this place turns into an Eden for those who love the snow. Hence, it is absolutely the perfect place for our trip.

On the glacier trek we’ll take, we will visit the outlet glacier located in the Vatnajökull National Park. So, we will get the chance to explore the water cauldrons, ridges and deep crevasses. In order to do that, we’ll gear up with an ice axe, helmet, crampons and harness, with a safety briefing before heading into the ice.

Then, we will step into an incomparable ice world. Here, we’ll find dazzling wild ice formations that nature has sculpted. Thus, it is the absolutely best scenario for an ice climbing adventure. So, we’ll let our imagination run wild as we introduce ourselves into the magical world of glacier trekking and ice climbing.

Don’t miss out this opportunity and join one of our guides on this journey. It will be an unforgettable trip.
