  • Walk through a wonderland of glacial ice sculptures and experience the real magnificence of Iceland's natural landscapes

  • Feel completely safe with your experienced guide who will show you how to work your equipment, from crampons to ice axes


Got your crampons and ice axe in order? Make like an intrepid explorer and get (literally) stuck into Iceland's magnificent glaciers. Discover glacial ice sculptures, ice ridges and deep crevasses with this Blue Ice Experience in Skaftafell.

The amazing outlet glacier in Skaftafell is a mesmerizing sight from every angle, but it's even better when you're standing on it. Soak up those icy sights as you dig your crampons into a glacier that actually extends from the largest glacier in Europe – the mighty Vatnajökull.

Your certified and experienced glacier guide will show you how to use your equipment, but it's so easy that anyone in good physical condition can take this walk. While it might seem a bit scary at first, it's very safe, and you'll be fine once you get going. And the scenery goes on for miles!
