Choose a 9:15am, 11:15am, 1:15pm, or 3:15pm tour, then make your way to the Skaftafell National Park to meet your guide and begin your adventure. This family-friendly 3-hour hike is suitable for kids and adults alike.
First, collect your glacier-hiking equipment — including crampons, helmets and ice axes — at the base in Skaftafell. Then, take a seat in your vehicle for the 15-minute journey to the Falljökull glacier — widely considered among the region’s top natural attractions.
During your hike, follow gentle trails through the glacier valley and listen as your guide shines a light on the region’s geology. Discover open crevasses and glacier mills out on the ice sheets in safety, and learn how the mighty Falljökull glacier was formed over millions of years.
When your time on the glacier comes to an end, return in comfort to the base in Skaftafell to bring your tour to an end.
