Our trips from Skaftafell all depart from our Glacier Guides booking house, located at the edge of the Skaftafell National Park Visitors center parking lot (visit our Getting Here page for directions to Skaftafell). For our glacier tours, we will provide you with almost everything needed to have a great adventure, however, for each trip, there are some things you need to bring. Please read the details for the trips you are joining or view our equipment list so that you can be sure you have all you need for a great day out in the Icelandic nature. Our trips are subject to weather and Glacier Guides reserves the right to change any trip if conditions are not appropriate.
Guests are advised that all activities are undertaken entirely at their own risk and they must behave in a fit and proper manner at all times in accordance with Glacier Guides guidelines and must take proper responsibility for their own actions. Glacier hiking and related activities carry inherent risks. We hope you will join us on an adventure to enjoy the Icelandic nature.
