Your adventure begins at the Sólheimajökull Glacier parking area, where you’ll meet your guide in time for a 10am, 12pm, or 2pm departure (depending on tour option selected). After a safety briefing, get suited up with crampons, ice axes, and glacial hiking gear, and take the time to practice walking along the ice, before setting out on a thrilling trek across the glacier.
Marvel at the wild glacial landscapes as you climb through deep crevasses and ice tunnels, duck beneath high walls of ice, and admire water cauldrons and natural ice sculptures. Along the way, listen as your guide explains more about the region’s unique geology, and discover how the glaciers form and change over time.
After around 3.5 hours on the ice, your tour ends back at the parking area.
Please note: This tour is best suited to participants with their own transport - travelers must provide their own transportation to and from the Sólheimajökull Glacier parking area.
