Highlands of Iceland - Glacier Hiking - Glacier lake sailing
On our comfortable boat it takes about a half an hour to cross the highland lake and we land the boat straight in front of Nordurjokull glacier that rises up in the sky in front of us. We can see the melting water from the glacier and this spot is one of the most amazing spots in Iceland. This is where the river Hvita originates, which forms the famous Gullfoss waterfall.
Walk on Ice
On crampons those who want can hike with our glacier-guide on the glacier for about an hour. The view from Langjokull glacier is amazing. This is an easy walk on a glacier. You can also walk around the coast next to the glacier if you don't want to do the glacier hiking.
After the hike we take the crampons off and put the life-vest on. We go on board the boat again visiting some fantastic view points on the lake on our way. Karlsdrattur is a beautiful place and a real nature reserve. Protected by the glacier and the lake it is really difficult to access unless from a boat. Due to preservations reason we only explore this beautiful place from the boat.
