Sólheimajökull parking area

Take advantage of this excellent glacier kayak combo. You'll have an amazing time paddling in the icebergs; and the walk on the glacier with the lecture about icebergs, glaciers, water is an interesting learning experience. The landscape is astonishing and the tour is planned well enough to have sunny skies the entire day.

What to expect?

Cut time and expenses and combine a kayaking tour on the Sólheimajökull glacier lagoon with a glacier walk. By booking both tours together you get the full glacier experience and save ISK 2000.

Your first activity is the glacier lagoon kayaking tour. You will meet your guide at Icelandic Mountain Guides Base Camp, next to the Sólheimajökull parking lot. The lagoon is only a five-minute walk from the Base Camp, once there you will receive your kayaking equipment and get a tutorial from your professional guide on how to sail your stable Sit-On-Top kayak. Once ready, you will start your hour-long tour around the lagoon, paddle around the dynamic and always changing icebergs, and admire the glacier tongue from a viewpoint inaccessible to the sightseers on foot.

After you finish your kayaking tour you go back to the base camp where you have a half-hour lunch break before you begin the next activity. Now, you go up on the glacier tongue where your guide will lead you through the otherworldly glacier landscape of stark contrasts - blue and white ice mixed with the dark volcanic ash from past eruptions. You will explore some of the many crevasses and ice sculptures of the glacier and learn about the geology and the history of the area.

Both tours are suitable for all skill levels and are led by professional and certified glacier guides. You will receive all the necessary safety equipment

  • a dry suit for your kayaking tour and crampons, ice axe and a harness for your glacier walk.
