A visit to Iceland wouldn’t be complete without an exploration into the splendid wonders of nature around it. The glacial formations in the country have powered scientific and environmental studies all over the world, and this five hour hike will allow you to get right into the glacier and see ice formations around it. You will first receive a training session from your certified glacier guide, and receive specialized equipment for your journey. Then you will head to the Vatnajökull ice cap to see the glacier up close. Around you are breathtaking mountain panoramas, and you’ll be surrounded by otherworldly ice formations, including an actual ice fall. With your guide, you’ll discover the inherent beauty in nature’s glaciers, and how they affect our environment.

    The price (purchasing activity) purchased at Klook is more direct than the official website and there is no problem at the scene. The equipment will be checked and confirmed at the beginning and the shoes will be provided free of charge. The tour guide is very professional and will lead us through different routes. We will confirm the road conditions ahead and even see the small ice caves. The 5.5-hour trip is highly recommended. Although there is little tiredness during the weekdays, the scenery is very charming and spectacular.

    The glaciers are really beautiful, the staffs they serve are very professional and the equipment is included, and if your equipment is not complete, he will direct you to replace them. More pity because of the weather, so we can only go to a relatively short time ~
