Glacier Adventure

Do you want to walk on the biggest glacier in Europe or visit our ice caves or something else related to the glacier? We provide a local guide service in the Vatnajökull National Park area, located in Hali, a farm close to Jökulsárlón. Glacier Adventure offers Ice Cave tours, Glacier Walk, Ice Climbing, Super Jeep tours, private and customized tours.


Glacier Adventure is a small company owned and run by two local families from Hali, 12 km from Glacier Lagoon. Our goal is to share our love and knowledge of the region with our clients and to safely introduce them to some of Iceland´s most stunning sights.

All our trips start at Hali Country Hotel reception, where your guide drives you away from the crowds and off the beaten path where you can breathe in the fresh Icelandic air.


As we travel in the stunning surroundings of Vatnajökull National Park with plenty of unique picture moments our guide takes you through the regions history from the settlement until our times.  Our tours are intended for those who want to spend some time outside walking, talking and enjoying the unforgettable landscape in the surroundings of Jökulsárlón.

“Highlight of Our Iceland Trip”

We had the best time at Vatnajokull thanks to Glacier Adventure. Getting to the cave was truly adventurous and it was great to know that we were with a guide that we can trust. The cave was truly breath taking, a trip that I will never forget.


“Great local guides”

This was one of the highlights of our iceland trip. Local, friendly, professional, informative and funny guides. These guys fitted us in at the last minute when our original company cancelled. Still only 13 on the tour so it wasn't over crowded. 
The shortish walk in was spectacular and the colours once we got in the cave are amazing. Highly recommend using these guys.


“Excellent experience”

A truly wonderful half day with a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Picked up from Hali Hotel with time for breakfast at the Hali Hotel and a short drive to the glacier. We were lucky to have a private tour and we went onto the glacier and down into the crevasses to see the waterfall formations. Wonderful weather and fantastic views - highly recommended
