Based on 1 traveller reviews

Join this tour to Sólheimajökull glacier on the south coast of Iceland for a chance to go ice-hiking on the glacier. You'll be picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavík in the morning for a drive along the south coast, past the volcano Eyjafjallajökull.

Sólheimajökull glacier is a part of the fourth largest glacier in Iceland, Mýrdalsjökull glacier, which is about 600 km2 large.

Underneath the glacier lies the volcano Katla, one of the biggest volcanoes in Iceland.

We provide all the safety equipment needed for the ice and after a lesson in ice walking we will head onto the glacier to experience this unique environment with some amazing terrain with crevasses, sink holes and ice ridges.

After the glacier walk we will head back to Reykjavík and on the way we will stop and look at the magnificent waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Join this tour to go glacier hiking and see the south coast of Iceland.
