Glacier hike & Treasure island
This tour is a little extreme, but it takes you to the most beautiful ice caves we know about. Your journey will begin by the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon where a super jeep will pick you up and take you on a 30-40 minute ride through the snowy landscape to the glacier edge. From there, we will walk 4km (50-90 minutes) over the scenic glacier to an area called Treasure Island. Once there, we will spend as much time as you need to experience the deep caves. As we are in no hurry, you can explore, enjoy and take photographs until we turn back the same way. This is an experience you'll remember for the rest of your life as your journey into Europe's largest glacier.
The meeting point for all our trips is at the Jökulsárlón / Glacier lagoon parking lot.
Please be at the Jökulsárlón / Glacier lagoon parking lot 30 minutes before departure.
Included in all our trips is all the safety equipment needed for the tour you are going on. Fx. Helmets and crampons for everyone.
The trip can be anywhere between 5 and 7 hours depending on the conditions on the glacier.
