Full description
Have you ever wondered how a glacier looks from the top? Relax and explore Iceland from the luxury of a Super Jeep. This off the beaten track tour on the glacier Skálafellsjökull is a unique experience in Iceland.  Stay away from the crowd and experience Icelandic nature at its best. You will ascend through the natural glacier valley Kálfafellsdalur, which was the iconic scenery in movies such as Batman Begins and the Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and also the popular TV series Game of Thrones.

The drive provides privileged access to the peak Brókartindur. You will park next to the summit, walk to the top and make a photo stop. Admire Vatnajökull’s main ice cap from a different perspective. From there, you will admire Þvetártindsegg, Suðursveit's highest mountain at 5,066 feet (1,544 meters).

The Super Jeep Tour on the glacier has five departures: 9:00 AM, 10:00 AM, 2:00 PM, 3:00 PM, and 7:00 PM. Pickup starts 15 minutes before departure. There is snow on the top all year round, so you will not need crampons or any special gear. However, hiking or waterproof boots are recommended. You will spend approximately 2 hours on the glacier.
