From £137

You don't have to be an adventurer to enjoy a walk on one of Iceland's most beautiful glaciers. Enjoy this award-winning tour and discover a wonderland of ice sculptures and waterfalls.

A glacier walk is a great way to experience Icelandic nature and a tour to Sólheimajökull glacier tongue is an ideal way to spend the day. On the two-hour drive from Reykjavik, you will pass right under the famous Eyjafjallajokull volcano that caused so much trouble in the spring of 2010. Just east of the volcano lies Solheimajokull, an outlet glacier from Myrdalsjokull, Iceland’s fourth largest glacier. There we will go on a safe and easy glacier walk on crampons up on to the ice field. Exploring the wonderland of ice sculptures, ridges and deep crevasses, you will learn more about these disappearing giants.

An experienced glacier guide will teach you how to use the basic ice equipment necessary for this tour. On the way back we will stop at the picturesque waterfalls of Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss.
