You might wonder what happens on a Skaftafell Glacier Hike. Here is a sneak peek:

Recently I had the pleasure of taking the French World Traveler Capitaine Rémi on a glacier hike in Skaftafell where we explored the beautiful Svínafellsjökull Glacier. Captaine Rémi documented the whole thing and shared this epic video with us.

It‘s a great short introduction to our glacier hike, where you can get a taste of what is to come on your upcoming journey to Skaftafell.

Understanding French might give you a bit of an advantage, but the video clearly speaks for itself so those of us who have no idea of what he is saying still can get a good idea of what the tour is all about.

We have to leave some details and fun facts for the tour!

But to sum it up:

  • Meet our epic guides
  • Get all geared up
  • Head to the glacier
  • Start the unforgettable hike
  • Enjoy the breathtaking scenery (and fun facts!)
  • … And the rest will be history?
