Se trata de una excursión para explorar el glaciar de 5 horas de duración que le permitirá contemplar grandes grietas de hielo y molinos glaciares hasta llegar a una cascada de hielo. Podrá caminar sobre la lengua del glaciar más grande de Europa, el glaciar Vatnajokull, mientras su guía le proporciona información interesante sobre la formación de los glaciares. La excursión se realiza en el Parque Nacional de Skaftafell, que se encuentra en el sudeste de Islandia y es una oportunidad perfecta para conocer de primera mano cuál es la fuerza y el tamaño de un glaciar.
Despite the unpredictable weather, our tour still went ahead and we had a fabulous time! Our guide Mark from UK was funny and knowledgeable, he was very attentive to everyone and made sure everyone stayed together since we had some mature people on our group. The glacier hike experience was one of the best ones we had and will happily recommend this company to other people.
We were a bit worried when the weather wasn't looking great cold and rainy, but it turns out it had been so warm that our trip was cancelled for safety reasons. They were great about the process, and it turns out they were able to reschedule us on a later tour! The guides were great - funny, knowledgeable, knew where to take us on the glacier for the cool photos! We aren't big hikers and were worried that the 5 hr hike would be too much, but I think it was fine for us. We stopped a decent amount and went pretty slow since almost everyone was new to using crampons on the ice. Such a cool experience and would definitely recommend the trip!
