Wander into a whole new world of ice as you summit the spectacular for a glacial view that seems frozen in time.

What to expect?

We start our journey from Isafjordur in the morning at 08.00 (8 a.m.) and drive from Isafjordur to the glacier area. There are a number of routes we can take to reach the glacier and we will select the safest route, depending on snow and weather conditions.
Our destination is Mt. Hrolleifsborg, which stands majestically on the NE side of the glacier. It‘s then a relatively easy walk to the summit from Drangajökull – and you most certainly will not be disappointed by the picturesque view when we reach the top of Mt. Hrolleifsborg if the weather allows.

We will then head to the comfort of Reykjanes hotel for a good dinner and an evening of rest and relaxation in their outdoor swimming pool before we head back to Isafjordur. We will be back in Isafjordur around midnight.

In Reykjanes there is very little light pollution, so when atmospheric conditions are right, the northern lights are truly spectacular to watch from the swimming pool.

For safety reasons, it might be necessary to alter our itinerary depending on weather and road conditions.
