All This Included
Join PolarExplorers on an incredible 9 day crossing of Europe’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull. Located in south west Iceland, Vatnajökull covers 8,100 square km of snow and ice and boasts numerous volcanoes including Grímsvötn (Iceland’s most active volcano) and Iceland’s highest peak, Hvannadalshnúkur (2110 m).
This spectacular glacier offers the perfect location for this classic ski/pulk adventure. Like its polar cousins Vatnajökull has unpredictable weather with potential for strong winds and precipitation. On clear days the views are stunning with rocky nunataks and mountain peaks surrounding the glacier.
You will be traveling expedition style, camping in tents with potentially two nights at the famous Grimsfjall Hut (complete with a geothermal wet sauna) perched high atop the caldera of the Grímsvötn volcano. The ease of travel to Iceland makes this expedition a breeze to plan and the relatively short duration means that you can go from door to door inside of two weeks.
