Take a Walk on the Ice Side

An easy Glacier Walk on Sólheimajökull glacier with a visit of two stunning waterfalls. Roundtour from Reykjavík.

A glacier walk is on great way to experience Icelandic nature. On our way to the glacier we will pass right under the famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano that caused so much trouble in the spring of 2010. Just east of the volcano lies Sólheimajökull, an outlet glacier from Mýrdalsjökull, Iceland’s fourth-largest glacier. You will be guided on a safe and easy Glacier Walk on crampons up onto the icy landscape. As we explore the wonderland of ice sculptures, ridges, and deep crevasses, you will learn about these disappearing giants. Our experienced guides will teach you how to use the basic glacier equipment necessary for this tour. This tour also gives the opportunity to enjoy the picturesque waterfalls, Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss.
