The Midnight Sun Glacier Summit Tour is is a wonderful experience which is not easily forgotten. The tour starts at Meeting Point B at Snaefellsnes Peninsula where you will gear up (see on the map below). You will get a ride in a snowcat mobile up to a roughly 1000-meter elevation on the glacier.
From there the glacier hiking begins up the remaining 350-meter elevation to the Snaefellsjokull glacier North Summit while you enjoy the magnificent views of the sunset. You will also get a glimse of Breiðafjörður Bay, Snæfellsnes peninsula and Faxaflói bay on the other side, bathed in the magnificent midnight sun is what makes this glacier summit tour truly unique.
You will get some time to take your reward winning photo on the top of the North Summit before hiking back down the glacier. This tour requires average or above average fitness, although the pace of the hike itself is relatively relaxed. Depending on conditions we may use snowshoes or crampons to assist us with this hike.
