Glacier Hike from Skaftafell - Extra Small Group

100 reviews
Many glacier tours in Vatnajökull National Park require travelers to walk from the parking lot to the glacier terminus, eating into their time on the ice. On this tour, maximize your time on Falljökull glacier by traveling as near as possible in a four-wheel-drive vehicle. Explore moulins, crevasses, and other formations in the company of an Association of Icelandic Mountain Guides-certified guide.

We only had a few hours when our tour group stopped here so we took the mostly flat trail out to the glacial lagoon, which was pretty good. Looking at some of the other photos here I wish we had had longer and walked some of the other trails. So my advice: Research before you come!

Glacier views, waterfall views, wild berries along the way and a few turf houses to admire. It is a beautiful place to hike and get your adventure fix!

I have only praise for the beauty and wonder of ALL Iceland state parks. However this one left a bitter taste after they charged me penalty for not paying parking (60euro) through the camper rental company even though I PAID the overnight stay and, as instructed by the rangers, brought the slip to the park desk for verification. The rangers said PARKING IS INCLUDED once you pay for the camper overnight stay. NOT.....another of the many rip offs i encountered in Iceland that made our 2 week vacation full of un pleasant memories and experiences with the locals and tourist business traps. The nature is breathtaking and I wonder how long it will last before it also is destroyed by overbuilding . There are NO camping regulations, so BE AWARE you will encounter good campsites and most which should never be allowed to operate. This one at the National Park is very good, however they aparenty have a practice of ripping tourists off !!
