In General

We start from Meeting point B and drive up to the mountains around Eysteinsdalur. First 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 hike between beautiful lava formations sticking out of the ground. With this great surrounding we stop to make traditional Icelandic hot chocolate to enjoy with the flatbread that´s kept us Icelanders alive throughout last millennium, and still does! From this elevation of about 400 meters we have great scenery 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.
