What you'll experience.

Glacier Journey in Iceland is truly a unique experience.

In this glacier journey, you will get the opportunity to visit and discover Iceland’s largest glacier. You will be driven in a specially modified Super Jeep vehicle to the glacier, where you get to explore the glacier, enjoy a truly spectacular view, go into and underneath the glacier, and experience the glacier’s beauty from the inside!

An experienced local guide leads the way and shares a wealth of fascinating information about glaciers, icefields and their impact on our environment during our journey, making sure everyone enjoys themselves to the fullest.

These ice caves are an ever changing natural phenomenon and, therefore, unpredictable. We will visit one ice cave during the tour and the choice of a cave is based on conditions and safety.

This exciting tour offers you the opportunity to walk inside a truly mighty chunk of ice. Vatnajökull Glacier was formed thousands of years ago and is by far the largest glacier in Iceland. It covers an area of roughly 8.000 Sq. km (5.500 Sq. miles) and is almost 1.000m thick at its deepest point, making it the largest glacier mass in Europe. Trump that for an ice cube.
