Take a look at some of our Glacier Tours in Iceland
Glaciers in Iceland
Vatnajokull is the largest glacier in Europe by volume and by far the largest in Iceland and can be seen from much of the Icelandic South Coast. The base camp for activities on Vatnajokull can be found at the Skaftafell National Park.
The second largest glacier in Iceland, Langjokull is located close to Husafell where tours such as Into the Glacier are operated, where you are taken on top of the glacier and into a man-made tunnel within.
The icecap of Myrdalsjokull covers an active volcano known as Katla that last erupted in 1918. Myrdalsjokull's outlet glacier Solheimajokull plays host to various activities such as glacier walks, ice climbing, and ice caving.
Featured heavily in Jules Verne's novel Journey to the Center of the Earth, Snaefellsnes was the place of the entrance to a passage that led deep into the center of the earth. Beneath the ice rests a 700,000-year-old stratovolcano that last erupted in 200 CE.
Most likely fresh in the memory of most Europeans, Eyjafjallajokull is a glacier-covered stratovolcano that erupted in March 2010 and disrupted much of the air traffic in Europe.
Can I Go on a Glacier in Iceland?
Yes, in fact, it's one of the more popular activities for travelers to engage in. You are required to have a licensed glacier guide with you if you're heading up there, which is made convenient through the hundreds of glacier day tours available to you.
Glacier Hike in Iceland
Glacier Hiking is a popular activity on the South Coast where guides lead groups onto glaciers like Vatnajokull and Solheimajokull, equipped with special spiked crampons and ice axes. Glacier walks are one of the easiest types of glacier activities available.
Ice Caves in Iceland
Accessible only during the low season, Ice Caves are incredible rare formations that occur on glaciers as a result of water moving beneath the dense glaciers. Ice Cave tours afford travelers the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to walk inside one of these amazing phenomenons and forge a memory that will stick with you for the rest of your left.
Ice Climbing in Iceland
Ice Climbing is the perfect activity for the thrill-seekers. Requiring a bit of patience and some basic endurance, it's an excellent cherry on top of an already exciting glacier walk.
