The tour

The tour starts at Hali Country Hotel reception, where you’ll meet up with your guide and drive a specially modified super jeep to the glacier area. You guide will take you away from the crowds and off the beaten path where you can breathe in the fresh Icelandic air.

After the Super Jeep ride to the glacier area, the glacier walk starts with an introduction to the equipment and safety rules needed to explore the glacier. You will be provided with ice crampons and your guide will teach you how to attach them to the boots. Crampons make it easy to walk on the ice so that there’s no worry of slipping. Other security items include helmets and ice axes.

You’ll walk through a wonderland of glacial ice sculptures, ridges and the deep crevasses of the glacier. You will also see big sinkholes, called “Moulin”, that sometimes have drilled their way through the glacier, draining the meltwater of the ice through little waterfalls and streams. The glacier also carries with it ashes of volcanic eruptions, the ash sometimes forms into a pyramid, called “dirt cone”.

In this unique tour you will get the chance to learn about the magnificent glacier, how it is formed and how it continues to change and shape every day
