Hike to the very summit of the incredible glacier that sits like a crown on the top of a Dormant volcano!

Experience incredible views over the entire Snæfellsnes peninsula and find your Icelandic Wild Side!

Great Tour with an even Greater guide. It´s not just a hike-to-the-top of the glacier and back. It´s a day you´ll never forget.

Best part of my Icelandic Adventure! I joined a lovely family from France to do the Touch the Crown glacier hike. By far, it was the most memorable part of my trip.
