More about this tour
We start our expedition from either Reykjavik or a pick up in the Golden Circle . We will take a Super-Jeep along the back roads towards the southern edge of Langjokull to arrive at the white lake. This is a spectacular body of water that was formed over the last 3 hundred years from glacial melt and is now teaming with trout, it is located at the foot of Europe’s second largest glacier. This is a place few people visit and the only way to get there is by boat.
We will enjoy a boat ride to the edge of the glacier and head towards the north east shores of the lake. Here we will go ashore and prepare for our glacier hike. Our guides will fit you in glacier gear and provide safety instruction. Armed with crampons and ice-axes, we will venture up onto the Glacier- exploring the crevasses and endless variety of the icescape. We might even stumble upon an Ice cave in the process!
After about 2 hours on the glacier we board the boat again and head to a secluded green oasis for a picnic before heading back to our superjeep to take you home.
Departure time: 10:00 AM
