3-hour Glacier Hike on Sólheimajökull

star-5

While many tours in Iceland make pit stops at glaciers—the country is, after all, full of them—fewer take you over them and close enough to discover their interesting features. With this tour, take an easy glacier hike to see ice formations, crevasses, and water cauldrons that you’d miss just stopping for a look. Your climbing crampons are provided, and the guided hike is offered 2-3 times a day so it’s easier to fit into your schedule.

Half-day Glacier Hiking at Sólheimajökull

star-5

Sólheimajökull is an outlet glacier of the Mýrdalsjökull, Iceland’s 4th largest glacier on the South Coast of Iceland. We will meet you at the parking lot where you will strap on a pair of crampons grab your ice pick and helmet and hike on the ice, exploring glacial features and learning about it’s formation. You'll experience first hand how it is to walk on ice, to take the twists and turns on pathways through crevasses and to use your ice axe to make it up steep slopes on pure glacial ice. We operate only in small groups, and we have a passionate team of guides who love their jobs. We think this will show. We like to spend as much time as we can on the glacier, we the guides enjoy this as much as the customers do. As we only operate one tour per day, we are not in a rush to get back for the next group arriving. You will be our focus for the day, and no one else.
