Fly east in the Splendid Simplicity tour to Hornafjordur. Visit the Glacial Lagoon, then mount a snowmobile and take a tour on Europe’s largest glacier.
Morning flight eastwards to Höfn in Hornafjördur, a small fishing town close to Vatnajökull Glacier.
Start by driving to the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, where huge, aqua-blue icebergs dot this mystical space. Board a boat for an otherworldly cruise between the floating ice masses.
Continue to the base of Vatnajökull Glacier where the coach driver shifts into low gear and we slowly meander up a rough mountain track. Once on the glacier you have the possibility to enjoy a good lunch in the glacier lodge (not included) and to mount a snowmobile and head into the world of splendid simplicity (approx 1-1,5 hour snowmobile tour, optional).
