This is a classic day tour from Reykjavik, perfect if you are looking to escape the city for a day without renting your own car.

What to expect?

In this tour we will take you to the Sólheimajökull glacier on the south coast of Iceland. We pick you up from your accommodation in Reykjavík in the morning and drive along the south coast, past the volcano Eyjafjallajökull and to the glacier. Sólheimajökull glacier is a part of the fourth largest glacier in Iceland, Mýrdalsjökull glacier, about 600 km2. Underneath the glacier lies the volcano Katla, one of the biggest volcanoes in Iceland.

We will 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 crevasse, 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.
