Navigate Langjokull's enormous amphitheaters of ice and trace history back to before mankind found fire on this glacier hiking trip from Húsafell.
Langjokull - also called The Long Glacier (1355m) is the second largest in Iceland. It has an area of about 950 km² and most of it rises between 1200 and 1300 m above sea level. The nearest town to the glacier is Húsafell - located in West of Iceland. (Please note that there is another Húsafell in South of Iceland, make sure you are driving to the right Húsafell). An hour and a half drive from central Reykjavik, the road leading to Klaki base camp is only suitable for 4×4 vehicles and closed in winter.
Meeting your guide either in Húsafell or Klaki base camp (depending on booking option) explore
Langjokull from the inside on this half-day glacier hiking excursion into and under the ice. Leading you to the untouched beauty and raw nature of the glacier, journey up the white slopes and go deep inside the man-made ice tunnels leading to the blue heart of the glacier.
