Come along on one of Iceland's most popular day trips, a hike on top of the great glacier Sólheimajökull. In groups of only eight guests, you will be accompanied by experienced and qualified local guides to the top of this majestic glacier. This tour is for anyone looking for a fun and exciting way to get to know one of Iceland's wonders in depth.
On your journey, you will see and hear about all the glacial features, enjoy the most stunning scenery, and hear interesting facts about Iceland's history and formation.
You will meet your local guide at Sólheimajökull parking lot and be introduced to the equipment needed for the tour. Once boots, rainwear, crampons, ice axe, helmet, and harness have all been fitted, you will walk with your small group towards the glacier (about 15-20 minutes).
Once in front of the glacier, your guide will show you and help to put crampons on your boots and introduce in more detail the appropriate usage of the equipment as well as safety on the glacier.
You will get to enjoy a 1.5-hour long glacier hike on the ice; where you'll pass white peaks of snow which have been blackened by ash from eruptions of nearby volcanoes.
As you walk by and through endless ice formations, your expert guides will tell you all about the glacier, from how it was made to the danger it faces.
After the fun and educational hike, you'll find yourself in front of the glacier again taking the crampons off and walking back to the parking lot, where the team says farewell, and everyone continues on their Iceland adventure.
