Glacier Journey’s Adventure of a Lifetime
For many, a trip to Iceland is the culmination of dream; a long awaited journey that sometimes takes years of saving to achieve. And once you are finally here, the daunting task of choosing what to do, where to go and what to see begins. The good news is that Iceland is a fairly compact little country and many of the most sought after gems of Icelandic nature, particularly on the south coast, are within easy reach of the capitol.
One of south Iceland’s most awe inspiring natural phenomena is the formidable Vatnajökull Glacier that harbours no less than six volcanoes within its icy depths. The vast glacier spans a large portion of the south coast driving route and a visit to the glacier is undeniably one of the top “must-do’s” that should be on everyone’s bucket list.
Let the adventure begin
Glacier Journey is a local, family run company that offers a variety of year-round snowmobile and jeep tours to the glacier and has received many glowing reviews over the years. Even if you have never had any experience driving a snowmobile, the friendly guides at Glacier Journey are with you all the way─ and learning how to drive a snowmobile is all part of the fun. At base camp you will receive warm overalls, helmets, gloves and a face mask that you can take home with you as a souvenir and then you’re off to explore the mesmerising beauty of Europe’s largest glacier by snowmobile.
A magical-mystical world of ice
The 15th of November to the end of March marks a very special moment in the year when it’s cold enough to go ice cave exploring! Glacier Journey’s three hour “Combo Tour” offers you a tremendous opportunity to explore the glacier inside and out. Experienced guides will lead the way into one of the ice caves that form at the edge of the glacier when temps drop down to below freezing and these icy-blue, fairy tale caves are safe to enter. The tour then continues “up top” with a fun-filled snow mobile adventure across the glacier, with incredible views along the whole south coast and beyond.
Small groups and families welcome
Glacier Journey caters to all sizes of groups, from company incentive tours to small groups and personal, private tours for the whole family. Young explorers under the age of eight are also welcome to visit the ice cave accompanied by their parents, of course. It’s soooo exciting!
See you soon on a Glacier Journey tour for the ultimate trip of a lifetime!
