Go further and deeper into the Vatnajökull Glacier in Skaftafell for an experience you will never forget!
Walking past the crowds with your skilled guide navigating a max. of 4 guests lets us give you the most intimate and quality glacier experience in Iceland.
A Vatnajökull glacier hike is one of the most exhilarating and fulfilling experiences possible in Iceland.
Not only is it an exciting adventure in the stunning wild landscapes of Iceland, but it also pushes you out of your comfort zone, helping you to achieve something truly remarkable.
On this adventure-packed day, you will hike beyond the crowds to explore the further reaches of an outlet glacier that’s part of the Vatnajökull ice cap.
At Ice Guardians, we have the lowest guest-to-guide ratio on the market at 4:1.
This means our Iceland glacier walks deliver high-quality hikes that involve more adventure, education & adaptability.
In smaller groups, you can fit into tight spaces & explore terrain that larger groups simply can’t.
This opens the door to the possibility of discovering temporary features on the glacier that you and no one else have ever seen or ventured into.
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, making the experience more meaningful and giving you a newfound love of glaciers!
Every full-day glacier hike in Iceland we undertake is a unique exploration as routes often change as the glacier melts and evolves.
