Super-jeep & Glacier Walk

Are you interested in some breathtaking landscapes? On the Ice Exploration tour, our guide will expose you to some of the best treasures the glacier has to offer. The glacier is in constant change which results in some beautiful characteristics such as crevasses, moulins, and seracs. Sounds good? Then the Ice Exploration tour is something for you!


On the Ice Exploration tour, you will spend around 4-5 hours hiking on Breiðamerkurjökull with one of our experienced guides. The glacier in question is an outlet glacier of the more prominent Vatnajökull and is best known for being the glacier overlooking the Glacier Lagoon. On the tour, your guide will share their knowledge of how the glacier forms, and how the constant change in glaciers affects the area and the glaciers themselves. On this tour, you will be able to experience the spectacular scenery on the ever-changing glacier, not only in the winter but during the summer months in Iceland. The tour is rated medium in terms of difficulty and you will be walking a total distance of about 6-10 km (depending on the group) on various terrains. You will be equipped with crampons, a helmet, and a safety harness. The guide will introduce you to the safety equipment and ensure that you are prepared before the journey begins. Once we hit the ice you will not only be amazed by the beauty but also mesmerized by the sound as the ice beneath your feet crunches.

It is highly advisable to take a camera, or at least a phone to capture the amazing moments because it will not be long before the glacial formations change or even disappear as they normally do.
