With crampons on foot and ice axe in hand, get intimate with the ancient ice formations of Europe's largest glacier!
After exploring Iceland's glaciers for over a decade with visitors from around the world we quickly found that it´s just not the same to look at an ice fall cascading down from a 2000m high caldera from a distance. You need to be in it to fully appreciate the force and size. We created the Explorer trip to give our guests this experience.
