Local Guide

Local Guide of Vatnajökull is a small family run company in the South East of Iceland offering small and intimate glacier trips on the Vatnajökull glacier outlets. All of our guides are local to the area and have a wealth of experience guiding and training on Vatnajökull glacier.

We pride ourselves in offering tours suitable for all abilities and levels of enthusiasm, whether you are a family experiencing Iceland for the first time, or if you are a more adventurous explorer with some experience on glaciers, we hope you will enjoy a trip with us at Local Guide.

What do we offer?

Winter: During the winter months October-March we specialise in ice cave tours. We offer short, more accessible tours as well as longer tours suited to the more adventurous. We are able to cater to large group sizes too.

Summer: In the summer months from April-September our focus is glacier hiking. We have a number of tours suitable for most ages, as well as ice climbing or a full day techniques tour for the more adventurous.

Why Chose Local Guide?

- Small group experience
- 4x4 jeep transfer (which means less of a walk to the glacier)
- Local guides that know the area very well
- Highly trained glacier guides using the standards of AIMG
- Owned and run by locals living in the Vatnajökull region
