Come along on an ice climbing adventure on Sólheimajökull glacier. Bring your favourite people along on this private tour, where you hike across the white expanse to scale a great wall of ice. Those wanting to add an exciting twist to their holiday should not let this fantastic opportunity pass them by. 

Located on the beautiful South Coast, Sólheimajökull is a rugged and raw outlet glacier of the larger Mýrdalsjökull. You can meet your guides at the parking lot of the glacier or, if you prefer, request to be picked up from either Reykjavík or various towns on the South Coast. 

Because this is a private tour, you get to decide when you depart for your excursion. Should you wish to begin the day early by breathing in the fresh mountain air, you can start in the morning. But if you prefer to visit the cascading waterfalls or black sand beaches of the South Coast before your climb, you can start the tour later. The choice is yours.

At the foot of the glacier, your certified glacier guide will give you all gear needed for your adventures, such as crampons, a helmet and an ice axe, as well as teach you how to use the equipment. They will also tell you a little bit about glaciers, from how they are formed to the dangers they face. 

Then there is nothing left but to go on the crevasse riddled glacier, with your expert guide leading you past its unusual ice formations, jagged ridges, and sinkholes. As you trek across the ancient ice, you and your guide will be looking for a perfect location for the ice climbing. Once the right spot is found, you’ll get to scale a massive ice wall or descend into a crevasse with the help of your glacier equipment and your guide. 

Combine incredible adventure with the beautiful Icelandic nature on this private ice climbing tour. Secure your spot by booking now! Check availability by choosing a date.
