Tour description

Embark on an extraordinary adventure on our glacier hike. This tour is perfect for adventurers who like to go off the beaten path as this journey takes you through untouched, alluring landscape to Fjallsjökull glacier. Then step onto the glacier and explore the crevassess and the frozen landscape overlooking Fjallsarlon glacier lagoon in peace and quiet. Fjallsjokull glacier is a glacier outlet that crawls down from Vatnajokull Glacier.

With small group size, we ensure a personalized and crowd-free experience.

Check in is 30 minutes before scheduled time. A 15-minute drive in a 4×4 vehicle will bring you to the starting point of your hike. Our experienced guides will then lead you through a stunning landscape, offering breathtaking views of the mountains, Fjallsárlón glacier lagoon, and the majestic Vatnajökull glacier to the glacier. The walk to and from the glacier takes around 45 minutes each way. You will then enjoy 60-90 minutes on the glacier before heading back to Fjallsarlon basecamp.

The moderate hike covers approximately 5-7 kilometers and takes about 3 hours in total, including 1-1.5 hours on the glacier. This trip involves a small amount of walking ascent, making it manageable for most people in good health.

We are located in Southeast Iceland within Vatnajökull National Park, a Unesco heritage site. Parking is free of charge.

At Fjallsárlón Basecamp, you can enjoy refreshments at Frost Restaurant at your convenience.

Absolutely perfect experience! If you are considering to visit ice cave, do not think more, this is the best option you can do. They will take you by car to the nearest place, then you walk about 25 minutes and after that you are going inside the cave. For the whole time we talked, learned more about Iceland, glaciers and many more intetesting facts. Also, took great photos 📷 After we came back to the base camp, we could have a free tomato soup, which was the best one we ever had ❤️

Highly recommended, nice, competent tour guide with a lot of knowledge and humor. We did the Icecave tour and loved it. Afterwards there was hot soup. It was also great and the restaurant staff were very nice and accommodating. Gladly again.

Highly recommended to visit an ice cave with them. As we are small groups, it feels more comfortable and they explain in detail the glaciers, how the cave is formed, the colors. It was a nice tour. The way to the ice cave was also a lot of fun. The guide was very nice, thanks! They also give you soup and coffee at the end of the tour. 😀
