Splendid Simplicity

May - September

Splendid Simplicity

€ 725

Day tour to Europe’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull, and the famous Glacier Lagoon.

We fly east to Höfn in Hornafjörður, a young town partially framed by Vatnajökull Glacier, larger than all other glaciers in Europe combined. This glacier and its various tongues flow along steep mountainsides, gently dominating the region’s coastline. Our coach drives us to Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, where huge, aqua-blue icebergs dot this mystical space. Here ice diamonds line the velvet-black beach, as small icebergs break off from the mighty glacier. Perfect for a photo break.

We board a boat and shove off for an otherworldly cruise, zigzagging between the imposing bergs. This area was the setting for the opening scenes of the James Bond film, Die Another Day

Optional Snowmobile tour atop of Vatnajökull Glacier

You slip into protective jumpsuits, helmets and gloves, pick out one snowmobile, and after brief instruction head into a world of splendid simplicity. The sights and sounds and silences of this majestic environment are peacefully exhilarating. There is only the now. We then return to the airport for the flight back to Reykjavík. The price for one hour snowmobile tour is €200 per person.
