SA8 - Snowshoe Tour with a Taste of Iceland

3 hour Snowshoe Tour With a Taste of Iceland


We start from Gufuskálar Base (Meeting Point B) and drive up to the mountains around Eysteinsdalur. First we drive on the road as far as we can go with our shuttle and then further inland using our snowcat, if conditions require. From there we put on snowshoes and walk between beautiful lava formations sticking out of the ground. We stop on the way to have a taste of Icelandic hot chocolate and the traditional flatbread that kept Icelanders alive throughout last millennium! From the elevation of about 400 meters we have great scenic views of both the glacier and over the beautiful coastline below.  This tour is a fun and easy snowshoe walk for anyone who’s reasonably fit to walk for 1-2 hours.
