Glacier Express

For those of you who just can’t wait to set foot on a glacier
Starting from Reykjavík Airport we head straight to the second largest glacier in Europe, Langjökull. There we will endeavor to land* and experience the calm and quiet of the Icelandic glacier air. Langjökull is one of Iceland’s visible remains of the last ice age. In summertime, you will see cracks and crevices in the glacier formed by its weight. On the way back we will pass the 9000-year-old volcano Skjaldbreiður that has the rare shape of a shield – seldom seen anywhere else in the world. We will fly along the magnificent Continental rift and over Thingvellir National Park – where you will learn about its important role in Icelandic history.
