* A traveler said: "Great hike, the guide was really knowledgeable and we got to experience the different terrains. It was a highlight of our trip for sure. Two issues though, with Viator, not the local tour company: first, not sure this should be rated as easy, as it can be quite challenging at times; second, the time was wrong, this started at 1030, not 930."

A challenging and wild adventure, the Vatnajökull Ice Cave tour will lead you deep into a remote glacier valley that is rarely visited by others. The 7.5Km hike is long and requires a good fitness ability level and for active and adventurous people it provides an exhilarating journey up to an impressive cave that lies right beneath the thick glacier ice. During the hike we have to use ropes for safety and the tour participants will be in situations which will include exposure to heights. Included in the journey to and from the ice cave you will experience the ever-changing glacier to explore features such as deep blue crevasses, towering ice seracs and panoramic view points. Whilst walking at a steady pace you will eventually complete a loop on the ice and then safely return to the parking lot. All necessary safety equipment is provided, including a helmet, harness and crampons.

Discover the beauty of Iceland’s largest glaciers and highest volcanoes with professional guides that focus on providing the highest possible standard of experience.  Gigantic rivers of ice are constantly pouring down from the Vatnajökull ice cap, flowing almost the entire way out to the ocean below. These powerful forces of nature have built and shaped the land within Vatnajökull National Park, subsequently creating formations that are unique only to this part of the world. Blue ice, green moss, volcanic rocks and pure drinking water. This is what the Iceland Glacier Walk is all about and what you will experience when you visit the glacier on a Iceland Glacier Walk with us. With safety as the highest priority at all times Glacier and Volcano Expeditions always endeavour to take their guests to the most interesting, beautiful and photogenic locations whilst also being on the lookout for new features that the glacier creates regularly. This is all part of the fun!

The ultimate adventure! Hike to a glacier lagoon, paddle across the glacier lake and hike up onto the glacier ice! You will be led on a scenic trail to a glacier lagoon where you will have the opportunity to paddle in your own single person boat as you are guided across the lake to the front of the glacier, where you will continue to hike up and onto the ice! The Glacier Hike and Kayaking combination is our most adventurous and rewarding tour. It is also rather challenging as it is 7 hours long and is recommended for people that exercise on a relatively regular basis and have no major pre existing medical conditions. This tour is a true wilderness style experience and one that we love to guide! You will also have the opportunity to try ice climbing on this adventure if you would like to make this outstanding adventure even more adventurous!
