Glacier Hiking Day Trips in South Iceland

With 30 years of adventure travel and activity operating under our belt we finally feel like we have perfected our glacier hiking trips in Iceland. Over the years we explored countless glacier plateaus, summited endless mountains and hiked many breathtaking outlet glaciers in our search for the ultimate glacier tour Iceland has to offer. We operate glacier trips from Reykjavik and from Skaftafell further along the South Coast. Click here to see our full list of glacier trips from Reykjavik.

Glacier Hiking Trips from Reykjavík:

From Reykjavik we can take you on the Sólheimajökull for a glacier hike and introduction to ice climbing, this is our ultimate best seller! Available every day, all year round, there is just no excuse from not visiting an Icelandic glacier. Click here for more information on the Blue Ice Glacier Tour.

We also operate a very popular South Coast sightseeing tour with stops at Skógafoss & Seljalandsfoss waterfalls, following trails to Reynisfjara with its black sand beach and for a grand finale, a short and accessable glacier walking tour on Sólheimajökull. Click here for more information on the Glaciers, Volcanoes and Waterfalls Tour.

If you want to get the most out of your day in Iceland you can combine the Blue Ice tour with a 4×4 super jeep adventure and sightseeing the South shores most treasured natural sights! You can either go on the driver guided tour South Shore Safari, or drive the super jeep yourself on the tour U-Drive South Shore!

 

Glacier Hiking Trips from Skaftafell:

From Skaftafell under the Vatnajökull glacier (Europe´s biggest glacier) we operate some of the most amazing glacier hikes and climbs you will find in the World (yes we are serious, this is something very, very special). Click here for the complete list of glacier trips available from Skaftafell.

Get ready for an in depth glacier adventure tour, the Glacier Explorer will take you on to one of the most impressive outlet glaciers of Vatnajökul for a real exploration. You can also combine this excursion with a boat tour on the Fjallsárlón  Glacier Lagoon and take our best selling tour, rightly named the Glacier Grand Slam.

In Skaftafell you can also join our super popular Glacier Wonders, only minutes from the National Park Service Terminal and get up close and personal with an actual ice fall, an outlet glacier crashing down a 800 meter high mountain.

And to top it of we guide the very demanding hike to the Hvannadalshnúkur on the Öræfajökull, giving those with strong legs and thirst for adventure a chance to stand on Iceland´s highest peak. This is our legendary trip White Giant.
