As this tour is for the more adventurous, we make sure to scout out some of the best routes to ensure a day of fun (and a little hard work) up on the ice. As this is a private tour both the guide and how we spend the time on the glacier are entirely at your disposal, we tailor the tour completely to you! We can incorporate hiking, ice climbing and even rope work and safety techniques for glacier travel.
By the end of the trip you should have a better understanding of glaciers in Iceland, some of the geological and historical features, ice climbing techniques and rope safety, and perhaps a spot of fatigue.
This small group tour is perfect for people that are looking for a great day out on the glacier leaving no ice unturned. This is an intimate and informative way to discover the secrets of Iceland’s incredible glaciers.
