Touch the Crown Snæfellsjökull

1.00

Snæfellsjökull glacier and volcano has been an inspiration for many artists through the ages. You too can be inspired!

We drive as far as we can towards the snowline from where we start the hike. You can sometimes slide down on the way back and we take some adventurous side steps to the Sinning Cave.

Summer variation May - Sept.: You can rent a bike and get a nice 700 m drop ride, down the slopes.

This tour might be the right choice for the intermediate hikers. The price goes with minimum 3 persons in a group. With fewer we consider it as a private guided tour. - You can book and we will pay you back if we don‘t get the minimum for a tour.

We start and prepare at the GW-hut before we take to the giant Bárður (the statue) at Arnarstapi. We get good advice from our guard before we drive towards the snowline from where we start the hike. You can sometimes bike, slide on a sledge or a one-foot ski down on the way back (depending on snow conditions) and we take some adventures side steps.

Please notice: It can be a big variation in the trip connected to the snowline, summer and winter. During winter have to start the hike most often in 150 m elevation but in summer we start at 500 m. Average time for the hike from 150 up to 500 m is around 2 hours and from 500m up 700 m is 1+ hours.
