What You Can Expect

Glacier Exploration

Solheimajokull Glacier Walk

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.

So interesting to hear the history of the area and learn about the glaciers. The age range of my family was 9-70 and the guide made it great for all of us! Iceland is so gorgeous! Everyone needs to visit!

I'm 58 years old and in good shape, but I have arthritis in both knees and am afraid of heights. If I had known how many times I was going to have have to take big steps up or down onto icy surfaces, I might not have done this trip. And there were times we weren't far from a drop off. To be honest, I was anxious for most of it. All that being said, I'm glad I went. It was a once in a lifetime experience. I would not do it, though if you have doubts about your fitness level.
