Vatnajökull Ice Cave tour

Vatnajökull Ice Cave tour

star-5

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. Glacial ice caves are created by rainfall and ice meltwater that carves tunnels beneath the glacier and are a must-see when visiting the south of Iceland during the winter months. 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!

Fishing in Iceland

Fishing in Iceland

Depending on the weather and tides, the guide will bring you to a secret and natural river or lake to try out fishing in nature. Along the way, you might need to drive across some rivers before you arrive at the fishing spot. For beginners, the guide will teach you how to set up the rode, how the different rodes work and how to fish. Then, you can enjoy the beautiful scenery and wait. It might be 2 minutes, 10 minutes or more but since our guide is an expert fisherman, we seldom go home empty handed. Enjoy the thrill of reeling in your catch and of course enjoy a good meal out of it (or them) if you wish to keep your catch. You also have the option for sea-angling (on the dock, so no sea-sick) if you select the full day tour.

Glacier Kayaking Iceland

Glacier Kayaking Iceland

Experience the freedom of floating on a glacier lagoon gliding in between icebergs that come from Vatnajökull, Icelands largest glacier. The Glacier Kayaking Iceland tour leads you on a hike to a glacier lagoon, followed with kayaking between ancient glacier icebergs, and finish by paddling back down the river to where you started from! The kayak is an inflatable boat called a packraft. Our packrafts are single-person boats that are extremely buoyant as they are a pontoon-style design, which also means they are incredibly stable. Packrafts are easy to paddle and there is very little chance that novice users will tip out. Weighing under 10kg including your drysuit, paddle and PFD, all of this equipment is very portable and easily carried in a backpack. You will be issued all of this equipment at the beginning of the tour, and you will need to carry the equipment in the backpack to the glacier lake. The walk to the lake is 2km long and takes approximately 30-40 minuets.
