OF THE GLACIER
Have you ever dreamed of stepping foot on the largest glacier in Europe?
Come and explore the wonder of Breiðamerkurjökull, one of the stunning outlet glaciers of Vatnajökull glacier, the largest glacier in Europe. We meet at Jökulsárlón, the Glacier Lagoon, and from there we go off in a modified super jeep to the edge of the glacier.
You get to explore the glacier environment, the glacier crevasses with all its colors and beauty, enjoy a view out of this world and go into the glacier and experience the glacier’s magnificence inside an ice cave. A tour discovering the under wonders of the glacier is a truly unique experience.
At the base of the glacier, our guides will provide you with safety equipment (helmet, harness, ice axe and crampons) and the fun begins!
Our guides are all experienced local guides and will make sure that everyone is safe and are enjoying themselves to the fullest during the tour. The guide will lead the way and share a wealth of fascinating information about glaciers, icefields and their impact on our environment. If there is anything else you would like to know, don’t be afraid to ask.
