Duration3 hours
person-raw
DifficultyModerate

If you're on the southern coast of Iceland and looking for a great day of glacier hike, this is what you are looking for.

What to expect?

The Sólheimajökull glacier tongue extends from the great Mýrdalsjökull glacier, down to the sandy plains of the Icelandic south coast. The spectacular surroundings are marked by rugged and majestic rock formations thoroughly shaped by the glacier. On this fun, safe and easy to moderate glacier walk you get to explore the wonderland of ice sculptures, water cauldrons, ridges and deep crevasses on the breathtaking Sólheimajökull glacier. While enjoying all the features of the glacier and its spectacular surroundings, you will learn more about the behavior of glaciers and their impact on nature.

No technical requirements are needed for the tour as an experienced glacier guide will teach you how to use basic glacier equipment, such as crampons and an ice axe which are provided for all our glacier walk tours. The unique experience of a glacier walk on one of the many retreating glaciers of the world is sure to leave lasting memories Because of changes in landscape at Sólheimajökull glacier we have combined the old Blue ice Adventure and Sólheimajökull Exploration into the Sólheimajökull Glacier Walk. These changes in landscape involve about 30-40 min walk from the parking lot to the glacier itself.
