We realize that not everyone coming to Iceland wants to discuss the intricacies of ship fittings or market dynamics. We invite players to bring their wives, husbands, boyfriends, girlfriends, or just friends, to accompany them on the trip to Iceland and participate in this excursion that takes place during the Friday of Fanfest. Not only that, but Sisters of EVE pass holders are invited to join in at the Party at the Top of the World on Saturday night!
And so, here it is, the Official 2016 Sisters Of EVE Tour!
There are Ice Tunnels and Ice Caves in various places around the world but there is nothing quite like Into the Glacier, either as high up in a remote area of an Ice Cap Glacier or on such a scale. Never before has anyone been able to see the beautiful blue ice at the heart of an Ice Cap Glacier. This will be the highlight of the day offering lunch with a glacially chilled beer inside the tunnel. Who else can say they’ve drank a beer inside a glacier?
In the morning we will leave from Harpan in direction of Mt. Esja, sightseeing from the bus for the first hour and a half passing majestic landscape headed for Borgarfjörður. Our first stop will be to Deildartunguhver, a very powerful geothermal spring area. From there we will continue on look to the magical Hraunfossar, the enchanting lava waterfalls and the cascades of Barnafoss.
Before heading up to the glacier, we will stop at Húsafell for a short break while we get ready to board the Super Truck and Super Jeeps needed to get up onto the glacier and to the entrance of the ice tunnel. In the glacier we will go on a guided tour threading the ice tunnels and finishing with a once in a lifetime lunch and an ice cold beer inside the glacier.
Then we head back down to Húsafell where our transport will be waiting for us to return to Reykjavík.
