This tour will start with a short drive from our base to Falljökull glacier, which is a neighbouring glacier outlet descending from the vast Vatnajökull ice cap . At the edge of the glacier, you will learn to put on crampons and have a small safety briefing. With an ice axe at hand we will then embark on a one hour guided excursion on the glacier. Your guide will be pointing out some of the fascinating features of the ice while on the hike and teaching you about some of the local geography and history. The glacier surface and colour change a lot depending on the time of year, but summer is the perfect time to get up on the ice and explore.
Our meeting point is at Freysnes Service Station. You will see there our big black van marked with a Local Guide logo. You can purchase a coffee or any snack at the station as well as use the toilets before and after the tour.
Hiking boots with ankle support, outdoor clothes, gloves, hat and sunglasses recommended if sunny. Let us know if you don´t have hiking boots, you can rent them from us on location for 1.000 ISK
