Vatnajökull & Jökulsárlón Day tour

This amazing adventure tour will take you into the Vatnajökull National Park in South East Iceland and onto the largest glacier in Europe. We will drive along the South Coast and stop on our way to have lunch (not included) at the national park entrance in Skaftafell before starting our adventure on the Virkisjökull glacier. There we will go for a scenic hike on the glacier itself and feel the ancient ice under our feet and all around. High above us on the outlet rises the massive Vatnajökull glacier in all its magnificence, a sight not soon forgotten.

Walking on crampons (metal spikes for the soles of our shoes) we safely walk on the ice and along the way we see spectacular ice formations, deep sinkholes and rugged ice crevasses. Our specially trained, highly qualified glacier guides will tell you all about the Vatnajökull Glacier and the rough outlet glaciers, that like the Virkisjökull, descend from the main hub, towards the ocean.

From Virkisjökull, we continue onwards and onto the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon on Breiðamerkursandur. This place is one of the absolute must-sees and there is no better way to explore it than on one of the strange looking amphibian boats. We’ll find ourselves gliding between huge icebergs, which constantly break away from the glacier tongue of Breiðamerkurjökull, producing a wonderworld of ice, hard to describe with words.
