GlacierAdventure

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 Base Camp, only 12km east of the Glacier Lagoon. The meeting point is Hali. At Hali we have a hotel, guesthouse, restaurant and even a museum.

The company 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 small and intimate group. Over the winter period, from November to middle of March we go in side 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.

Jokulsarlon Glacier lagoon

The main lagoon measures about 7 square miles (20 km2) and until 1932 was covered in thick glacial ice. Then the glacier started to retreat, and nowadays more than 300 feet (100 m) of ice breaks away each year to reshape the lagoon and fill it with spectacular icebergs.

Jökulsárlón has been a part of the Vatnajökull National Park since 1017. The lagoon is open to the sea and so contains a mixture of salt and freshwater, giving it a unique blue-green color. There are hundreds of seals here in the winter and the lagoon supports many species of fish including krill, herring, trout and, occasionally, salmon.
