The trip starts at Hali Country Hotel reception, where your guide drives you to the glacier area, away from the crowds and off the beaten path where you can breathe in the fresh Icelandic air.
The tour can take between 3 and 4 hours (1 – 1,5 hour on the glacier), including drive back and forth from our pick up location at Hali reception. This tour is moderated and can be done by most children and adults.
Before we start the drive we need to gear you up. It’s necessary to have the correct footwear for glacier hiking. You can rent hiking boots on location and the rental price is 1.000 ISK per pair.
After the Super Jeep ride to the glacier area we take a short zodiac boat trip and sail a short distance to where the glacier walk starts. (We recommend that people take a proper boat tour at Glacier Lagoon/Jökulsárlón or Fjallsárlón, this one is only for 2 minutes).
