These glaciers aren’t going to climb themselves! Glacier exploration is a unique experience, literally transporting travelers to a higher plane, where different values apply.
The beauty of glaciers is eternal, but obstacles to enjoying it are largely a thing of the past. Glacier exploration is a unique experience, literally transporting travelers to a higher plane, where different values apply.
Tours are available where travelers make the ascent by bus or super jeeps, and then have time to explore in a variety of ways including glacier hiking, ice climbing, and by snowmobile. The main starting point for exploring several of the many glaciers that form the Vatnajokull cap is the town of Hofn in southeast Iceland.
Other glacier favorites are the mystical Snaefellsjokull on Snaefellsnes peninsula, Myrdalsjokull on the south coast, and Langjokull where West Iceland borders the highlands, the closest major glacier to the capital.
