Day Trip from Reykjavik: Glacier Hiking and Ice Climbing on Iceland's Sólheimajokull Glacier

Glacier Hiking and Ice Climbing on Iceland's Solheimajokull Glacier

Take a day trip from Reykjavik to experience Iceland's stunning nature and picturesque views from the outlet of the Myrdalsjokull Glacier -- the Sólheimajökull Glacier. After hotel pickup in Reykjavik in the morning, enjoy a relaxing coach ride to your destination in the southwest of Iceland, where your experienced guide will give you a brief safety introduction before leading you on a hike on the Sólheimajökull Glacier.

Walk across this magnificent phenomenon -- a rugged, raw and ever-changing hub of ancient frozen water. The ice tongue, termed because the glacier crawls toward the ocean and forms a long outlet of ice, will amaze you with unique, breathtaking views. With your guide, explore the outlet glacier with its amazing ice formations, crevasses, sink holes, deep cracks and jagged ridges.

When you reach an ice wall, try your hand at ice climbing! Having all the safety tools you need, such as ice axes, crampons and safety lines, brave the heights and be rewarded throughout the whole climb with stunning natural sights, making this trip an experience you won’t forget.

After your glacier adventure, stop at the beautiful Skógafoss waterfall, one of Iceland's largest waterfalls, before returning to Reykjavik.

Loved this tour. Staff were knowledgable, had safety in mind the whole way across the glacier. Enjoyed the trek up to the glacier almost as much as the glacier experience. Beautiful scenery and lucky enough to have a day with a shining sun. A rainbow popped up as we got onto the glacier. Perfect

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

Well worth a visit - seeing the amazing landscape and blue ice on the glacier is not to be missed. You can choose to do the ice climbing of not so don't need a high level of fitness. I'd recommend the climb but my tip is to wear the boots they offer rather than shoes as mine were falling off.
