Witness The Beauty of the Glacier On Land & By Boat
This tour combines our most popular glacier walk, the Blue Ice Experience, with an amazing iceberg boat tour on the Fjallsárlón glacier lagoon.
Your day starts in Skaftafell - 20 minutes before departure - where you meet your certified glacier guide at our base camp next to the National Park Visitor Centre. Here, we will prep you for your 2.5-hour glacier walk and fit you with the necessary glacier gear - crampons, a harness, and an ice axe - before you head over to the Svínafellsjökull glacier tongue. There, one of our experienced glacier guides will lead you safely through the glacial wonderland of ridges, crevasses and ice formations.
After the glacier hike, you must travel on your own to Fjallsárlón Glacier Lagoon, where your Zodiac Adventure boat awaits you for the iceberg boat tour. The tour starts at 14:30, please be ready few minutes before the scheduled time of your tour. The newly renovated restaurant Frost at Fjallsárlón Base offers a good selection of home cooked dishes, sandwiches, and soup if you want to buy lunch before your iceberg boat tour.
When you are ready, you suit up and head out onto the lagoon. The small and agile Zodiac boats give you a chance to sail right next to the most interesting icebergs and go up close with the massive icefall of Fjallsjökull glacier terminal face. If you are lucky you will see a piece break off the edge of the glacier and into the lagoon.
Both tours are operated by professional guides and guarantee a small-group experience.
