Starting point

Come with us on this fun and easy hike on Snæfellsjökull Glacier! The well-known magical elements of Snæfellsjökull Glacier can be experienced on this tour, especially for those seeking pure contact with unspoiled nature.

What to expect?

  • This tour begins at Gufuskálar, where we fit crampons and boots. From there we drive our mountain truck up to the roots of Snæfellsjökull Glacier, at an elevation of 750 meters. Then, we walk up to the glacier ice, where we put on crampons and walk at a relatively easy pace up to about 900 meters to see crevasses, moulins and other interesting ice formations on the way. During the hike, we'll stop at regular intervals to enjoy the beautiful view over the lowlands and Breiðafjörður Bay on the one side and Snæfellsjökull Summit on the other.
