Our guide to Blue Ice Experience - Glacier Walk

Your guide warmly welcomes you in Skaftafell, and provides a thorough introduction to your equipment, including crampons and an ice axe, to ensure your safety and preparedness for your journey. The adventure begins with a short ride on a robust vehicle, bringing you close to the glacier's edge maximising your time on it.

Leaving the crowded parts of the Glacier the expedition is intentionally intimate, catering to small groups of up to 15 passengers, allowing the guides to offer a personalized experience and share their extensive knowledge of local flora, fauna, geology, and glaciology.

Each Icelandic Mountain Guide is 'Wilderness First Responder' certified and has completed the rigorous Hard Ice glacier training, developed with New Zealand's top guides. Many are active in local search and rescue teams and some are passionate scientists. They bring both expertise and a strong dedication to safety to your journey.

Discover the true meaning of Blue Ice and take home memories that will last a lifetime.
