We offer summer hikes in Falljökull glacier between April and October.
See what we have to offer below!

GLACIER ENCOUNTER

The Glacier Encounter is the perfect introduction to glaciers in Vatnajökull National Park. By driving to the glacier in our super jeeps, we save your hiking legs and time for up on the ice. We fully carbon offset the tours, making the experience accessible and carbon neutral. 

GLACIER DISCOVERY

Experience the mighty Vatnajökull, the biggest glacier in Europe.  On this extended half-day tour we head higher up on a nearby outlet glacier called Falljökull, named for the incredible icefall full of blue ice we will explore.

GLACIER TECHNIQUES

This private ice climbing tour is perfect for those looking for a full day out on the glacier, leaving no ice crystal unturned. Our most adventurous tour is suitable for those looking for both a challenge and a unique experience in Iceland. A good level of fitness and enthusiasm is recommended but no prior experience is necessary.
