Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your adventure begins at the Mountain Guides Sales Lodge in the Skaftafell-Vatnajökull National Park, where you meet your guide in time for your chosen departure time. After a safety briefing, get suited up with crampons, ice axes, and glacial hiking gear, and travel by bus to the starting point of your hike, a short drive from the lodge.

On arrival, take the time to practice walking along the ice, before following your guide on a thrilling glacier walk across the Falljökull Glacier. Marvel at the wild glacial landscapes as you climb through deep crevasses, duck beneath high ice arches, and admire glacier mills and ice sculptures. Listen as your guide explains more about the region’s unique geology and how the glaciers form and change over time, and perhaps catch sight of the snow-capped Hvannadalshnukur in the distance, Iceland’s highest peak.

Return to the bus for the journey back to the lodge.

Please note: This tour is best suited to participants with their own transport - travelers must provide their own transportation to and from the Mountain Guides Sales Lodge.

Great Experience

On our trip to Iceland we were very much looking forward to getting up on a glacier. We booked a tour on Viator with Icelandic Mountain Guides. It was an absolutely great experience. The service from Icelandic Mountain Guides was excellent. When my schedule required me to change my time to an earlier hike, they took care it no problem. When we showed up with too many layer of clothing they advised us to leave the extra layers with them. The guide Hanka, was fantastic. She gave personal attention to my children to really make them feel part of this unique and special experience. She was really able to bring to life with real demonstrations a lot of interesting information about the glacier. They took us on the Falljokull glacier and it was a truly beautiful and magnificent experience. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Joshua, Sarah, Goldy & David
