Glacier Adventure

GLACIER ADVENTURE

Glacier Adventure is a small family-run company. Our company revolves around Europe's largest glacier, Vatnajökull. All of our tours are operated on and in the glacier.
The company has its own meeting point, only 12km east of the Jökulsárlón, the Glacier Lagoon on of Iceland's most popular attractions. The meeting point is Hali. At Hali, we have a hotel, guesthouse, restaurant, and a museum about one of the famous Icelandic writer Þórbergur (1888-1974) who was born in Hali.

Our meeting point:
-Free parking
-Free wifi
-Restaurants, hotel, and guesthouses
-Only 15 minutes drive to Jökulsárlón, the Glacier Lagoon

The company's goal is to share our love and knowledge of the region with our clients and to safely introduce them to some of Iceland's most stunning sights.
We have summer and winter tours. During summer we take our clients on a glacier walk on Breiðamerkurjökull, one of Vatnajökull outlet glaciers. We also offer ice climbing in a small and intimate group.
Over the winter period, from November to the middle of March we go inside of the glacier. We have two ice caves that we take our clients to. We have a shorter and longer ice cave tour. As the glacier is ever-changing we have to find new ones every year.

Fjallsárlón Glacial Lagoon

Scenic Fjallsárlón is a glacial lagoon located around 10 km. west of Jökulsárlón, at the southern edge of Vatnajökull glacier. With the steep glacier tongue, Fjallsjökull coming down from Vatnajökull and all the way into the lagoon, makes it a perfect peaceful place for photos as well as enjoying the untouched nature. Fjallsárlón also offers boat-tours on the lagoon as well as a bistro with fresh and tasty refreshments.

Jökulsárlón Glacier lagoon

Jökulsárlón is a glacial lagoon by the ring road and was recently designated as a part of Vatnajökull National Park. It's still blue waters are a sight not to be missed, as it is dotted with the icebergs from the edge of Breiðamerkurjökull, a part of the Vatnajökull glacier. The lagoon flows through a narrow gateway into the Atlantic Ocean, leaving the spectacular sight of the large chunks of ice on the black sandy beach. In wintertime the fish-filled lagoon hosts numbers of seals, which visit the lagoon for an easy meal. Year-round
curious seals can be seen basking on the blue-tinted icebergs. The lagoon is accessible from the beach all year round, and so is the café on the banks of Jökulsárlón.
For hikers, a marked hiking trail between Jökulsárlón and Fjallsárlón is recommended as a scenic trip
through unforgettable surroundings.

Skálafell – Hjallanes

Skálafell is situated in the exact middle between the glacial lagoon Jökulsárlón and the town of Höfn in Hornafjörður. Skálafell offers access to beautiful, marked walking paths around the area offering a mere 45-minute walk to the edge of Vatnajökull glacier. Furthermore a new walkway bridge over river Kolgríma opens the hiking area of Heinaberg from Skálafell. This area is very popular when it comes to visiting glacial areas.

Breiðamerkursandur

Next to Jökulsárlón is a less known attraction named Breiðamerkursandur, which are fields of sand that get strewn with chunks
of glacial ice, carried along the river Jökulsá á Breiðamerkursandi, towards the sea and then sent back upon the sands by the tides. The diamond-like pieces of glacier create a mesmerizing atmosphere in the close mist that often visits the beach. These glistening ice-diamonds create an even more spectacular vision in the winter months when the sun comes out and bathes the beach in magical
lighting, which reflects off the ice. Waiting around in the darkness for the rising of the sun will be well worth the wait, despite the cold of the Icelandic winter night.
