Itinerary

Information

Once you're at the meeting point, you'll hop on a special transfer bus or already on Sleipnir Monster Truck (during winter) that'll take you to Geldingafell Base Camp. Here you'll get ready for your adventure. On your way to Langjökull – the second largest cap in Iceland – you'll have the perfect opportunity to sit back, relax, enjoy the beautiful landscapes, listen to Icelandic music, and hear exciting stories. 

When you’ve reached the famous glacier destination, you'll have a good time learning about Langjökull and perhaps even try out the taste of glacier water. If there will be a chance and good weather conditions you'll have a few additional activities, such as seeing Natural Ice Cave, playing glacier golf, or having fun by sledding down the glacier (activities are weather dependable).

After you've had the time of your life and filled your camera with breathtaking views, you'll return to Geldingafell Base Camp. Your adventure will be over once you're transferred back to the initial meeting point – Gullfoss Upper Parking.

Meeting point

Your meeting spot will be in the Upper Gullfoss parking space. The Sleipnir transfer bus will be at the parking space opposite Gullfosskaffi. The best time to be there is at 12:45 pm.

Please note:

  • The tour can be canceled on short notice due to severe weather conditions. An alternative tour, date, or full refund can be offered in this case.

FAQ

Iceland is known for its colorful weather. It can sometimes show you all 4 seasons in one day.

Dressing for this sort of weather can be a challenge so we always recommend dressing in layers. 3 or 4 upper layers are highly recommended such as a light t-shirt (preferably wool) next to the skin, then a fleece or heavy wool garment, topped off with a waterproof windbreaker.

Jeans are not recommended for our trips as they become very heavy, cold and uncomfortable to wear when they get wet.

Lightweight hiking pants, track pants or long cotton pants are best and then wind/waterproof pants over. We also recommend using sunglasses and sunscreen even if it is cloudy due to the high UV and sunlight reflecting off of the glacier.

You will need sturdy hiking boots that fit crampons for the glacier hiking tours. If you do not own a pair then we rent out good hiking boots as well as a waterproof raincoat and trousers.

We recommend bringing your own backpack on our full day or 1/2 day tours. It’s great to carry a small lunch and some extra clothing.

You can bring your camera along, and you should definitely bring one since the setting on the tour is full of amazing, scenic views.

We do not provide lunch on any of our trips, so we recommend you bring your own lunch (for the longer trips), snacks and a bottle of water (you can refill it on the trip).

Our tours are split into four different categories that help participants to understand what to expect from the tour. The categories are Easy, Moderate, Challenging and Demanding. Each tour is rated making it easier to find tours that suit you.

When snow stays long enough in one place it turns to ice. Over long periods of time, the ice layers up becoming huge blocks called glaciers. As there is a lot of snow in Iceland,  it forms to create ginormous glaciers that sweep across huge masses of land. Iceland is home to Europe’s largest glacier named Vatnajökull. This Glacier Guide will also tell you everything you may want to know about Glaciers.

The first step is to make sure your credit card provider allows you to make payments in Canadian Dollars (CAD) or American Dollars (USD) if you have selected.
