Take a Walk on the Ice Side


In less than two hours from Reykjavík we find the Eyjafjallajökull massif, and just a little further the Sólheimajökull glacier tongue extends down from it’s mother glacier, Mýrdalsjökull, Iceland’s fourth largest. Easy walk on crampons up on to the ice field where a wonderland of ice sculptures, ridges and deep crevasses awaits discovery. An experienced glacier Guide will teach you how to use basic glacier equipment. On the way back there’s a stop at the picturesque waterfalls, Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss.

Note: Bring warm clothing, rain gear, hiking shoes and lunch (also possible to buy on route). We lend rain coats for those who need.
