Detailed description

The most popular all year Glacier Adventure Tour in the book!

A glacier walk is a great way to experience Icelandic nature and a tour to Sólheimajökull glacier tongue is an ideal way to spend the day. On the two-hour drive from Reykjavík, you will pass right under the famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano that caused so much trouble in the spring of 2010. Just east of the volcano lies Sólheimajökull, an outlet glacier from Mýrdalsjökull, Iceland’s fourth-largest glacier. There, we will go on a safe and easy glacier walk on crampons up onto the ice field. As we explore the wonderland of ice sculptures, ridges, and deep crevasses, you will learn more and more about these disappearing giants. Our experienced mountain guides will teach you how to use basic glacier equipment necessary for this tour. On the way back we will stop at the picturesque waterfalls, Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss.

    We were very impressed by how knowledgeable the guides were. They know exactly where we could walk and where a hidden sinkhole (they call it Moulin) would be and showed us some really cool spots on the glacier. I even ate the ice! Strange feeling to eat ice that is over 1000 years of age. On the way there and back, the tour will stop to visit the famous Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls.
