The Magical Glacier Hike is the shortest and most popular glacier hike on Snæfellsjökull glacier. In this tour we walk on crampons on the hard ice from the roots of Snæfellsjökull glacier up to one of the crevasses areas bit further up on the glacier. The guide will explain the basics of glaciology and you will be able to have a look inside deep crevasses and glacier mills found on the glacier.
Snæfellsjökull glacier may not present the big ice ridges and formations found on the fast moving outlet glaciers in South Iceland but this tour brings the true elements of a beautiful glacier to life in a much more vivid and less crowded way. Then of course the scenery from up there is quite awesome.
We offer this tour as 2-3 hour hikes from the roots of the glacier. You need to be reasonably fit to participate, even though this is one of our easiest tours. We use our snow cat and/or trucks to get us up to the glacier roots, from where we start the hike. Then we’ll walk on crampons on the glacier ice, up to 1 kilometers total with total elevation gain of about 200 meters.
You will meet us for this tour at our base in Gufuskálar to fit crampons and gear up for the hike. From that point we drive up to Snæfellsjökull glacier in our 4×4 shuttle.
