  • The long glacier tour is a proper glacier adventure!!

    We love to explore, go to new places on the glaciers and find new features. Icelandic glaciers are constantly changing which requires us to often take new routes and explore as we go. This is all part of the fun!

    Usually the most interesting and beautiful glacier features require a few kilometres of hiking to reach them. Ideally one needs to allocate a full day of their holiday itinerary to visiting an Icelandic glacier. This allows us more than enough time to experience the glacier without rushing and gives us complete flexibility with what we decide to do on the tour. Having flexibility means that we can easily cater to your individual expectations and style and provide you with the highest possible standard of experience.

    Regardless of whether you prefer to take a nice long relaxed tour with plenty of time for chatting, photography and snack breaks or if you are after a more physically-challenging style of expedition with ice climbing and adrenaline laced into the exploration, we can make it happen on the long tour!

    We usually spend approximately 5 hours on the ice on our long glacier tours.
