This incredible adventure will take you into the Vatnajökull National Park in South East Iceland and onto the biggest glacier in Europe. We will drive along the South Coast on the Skaftafell Express Coach and have lunch at the national park entrance before starting our adventure on the Virkisjökull Glacier. There we will go for an exploratory hike on the glacier itself and feel the ancient ice under our feet and all around. High above us on the outlet glacier looms the massive Vatnajökull glacier in all its grandeur, a sight not soon forgotten.
Geared up on crampons (metal spikes for the soles of our shoes) we safely walk on the ice and along the way we witness spectacular ice formations, winding sink holes and deep ice crevasses. Our specially trained, highly qualified glacier guides will tell you all about the Vatnajökull Glacier and the rough outlet glaciers, that like the Virkisjökull, descend from the main hub, towards the ocean.
From Virkisjökull we continue onwards and onto the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon on Breiðamerkursandur. This place is one of the absolute must sees and there is no better way to explore it than on one of the strange looking amphibian boats. We´ll find ourselves gliding between huge icebergs, which constantly break away from the glacier tongue of Breiðamerkurjökull, producing a wonderworld of ice, hard to describe with words. After our boat ride we stop for coffee and a warm Icelandic waffel with cream and jam before starting our journey back to Reykjavík.
