SA2 - Magical Glacier Walk
Fun and Easy Walk on Snæfellsjökull´s Glacier Ice.
This is our shortest and most popular glacier tour. The well-known magical elements of Snæfellsjökull glacier can be experienced in this tour, especially for those seeking pure contact with unspoiled nature. This tour begins at Gufuskálar Base (Meeting Point B) where we fit crampons and boots. From there we drive our shuttle up to the roots of Snæfellsjökull glacier at 750-meter elevation. Then we walk up to the ice itself where we put on crampons and walk at relatively easy pace up to about 880 meters to see crevasses, moulins and other interesting ice formations on the way. We will stop regularly on the way to enjoy the beautiful view over the lowlands and Breiðafjörður bay on one side and up to the summit on the other side.
Location: Meeting point B
Duration: 3 hours total, about 1,5 hour on ice
