On this tour we drive as close as we can to an outlet glacier of Vatnajökull ice cap and then hike through glacier moraines and glacier landscape until we reach the tip of the glacier. There we put on crampons and with an ice axe at hand we go exploring the many fascinating glacier formations up close.
The glacier surface and colour change a lot depending on the time of year. We find different things to explore depending on the season, but one thing never changes; it is always an out of this world experience to walk on a glacier.
