Skaftafell Glacier Hike

Preis von: 9.900 ISK per person.

Skaftafell Glacier Hike is a tour like no other. Grab your hiking boots and get ready, because you’re going on an expedition onto Svínafellsjökull glacier in Skaftafell, Iceland.

On this comprehensive glacier tour, you’ll learn the basics of glacier hiking and rope work, and your guide will teach you all you want to know about the massive natural phenomena on which you’ll be climbing. You will be provided with all the necessary equipment and get to exercise beforehand in a comfortable and safe environment. Skaftafell Glacier Hike is an unforgettable experience.

This tour is for anyone seeking to experience one of the natural wonders of the world. You’ll meet your guide in the Skaftafell information centre parking lot, and a short 15-minute drive takes you to the tip of the glacier tongue.

Svínafellsjökull is part of Skaftafell, the highest mountain range in Iceland. The country’s highest peak, Hvannadalshnjúkur, marks the very top of this glacial giant which in recent times leapt into fame after starring in movies and TV shows, such as Game of Thrones and Oblivion.

Once you reach the icecap, you’ll have plenty of time to marvel at the glacier and take in the lonesome howl of the frosty wilderness that gives you and your fellow hikers the feeling of being alone in a vast, empty world of ice and snow; you’ll view massive blocks of millennia-old ice, created when oxygen bubbles are trapped in the snow and compressed by the enormous weight of the glacier; you’ll be able to gaze deep into a glacier moulin, a vertical shaft that can go all the way to the bottom of the glacier, and on a clear day, you’ll see Hvannadalshnjúkur and the vast glacier sand expanses that are said to be the largest in the world.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to witness the lunar ice formations and crevasses of Svínafellsjökull glacier.
