Activity description

Take a walk on the icy side with Icelandic Mountain Guides glacier walk on Svínafellsjökull in Skaftafell. You'll get to rock some sweet crampons and carry an ice axe as you make your way safely across one of the most famous glaciers in the country.  Svínafellsjökull is an outlet glacier that extends from Vatnajökull, the largest in all of Europe. You first will meet with your expert guide whose experience and knowledge of the glacier are unparalleled. They will show you fit you and show you how to use the provided glacier walking equipment. 

You will then journey onto the vast glacier with its deep crevasses and large sculpture-like features. The colors change constantly as you walk across the ice. Don't forget your camera - the photo opportunities you will have would make the most seasoned photographers jealous! You do not want to miss the chance to see this glacier in person.
