Embark on a glacier walk in Iceland with Glacier Adventure
When joining Glacier Adventure for a Glacier Walk you will get a personal experience from a local company. During this tour, you will explore one of the wonders of Vatnajökull National Park called Breiðarmerkurjökull. You will explore this stunning outlet glacier which extends from Vatnajökull Glacier, the largest glacier in Europe. Our certified and experienced glacier guides take you on an unforgettable journey to the glacier, which is located off the beaten path and away from the tourist crowds.
Once you step onto the ice it will feel like you are located on an icy planet. You might see some crevasses, small caves, tunnels as well as little waterfalls and streams that form sinkholes called “moulins,” along with other beautiful ice features. The glacier also carries ashes of past volcanic eruptions, which often form a pyramid, called “dirt cones”. During the tour, you will get the chance to learn about the glacier, its history, how it was formed, how it affects our community, and how it continues to change and shape every day.
