Solheimajokull Glacier Hike | 3-Hour Walk - Small Group

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Dressed appropriately for the cold, and wearing hiking boots, meet your guide and small group in Sólheimajökull parking lot at your scheduled time. 
    After a brisk 30-minute walk, arrive on the glacier and take in the sight of the millennia-old blue ice while your guide sets you up with all necessary equipment. Led by your experienced guide, embark upon the walk of a lifetime across the compacted ice. Your guide adjusts the pace and level of difficulty according to the needs and abilities of the group. Relax, knowing you are in careful hands, as your guide explains all about the formation of the glacier and how it is changing.
    Take the time to soak up the eerie quietness and sense of isolation as you stand atop the glacier tongue. On a clear day, admire the view of the ice cap-covered volcano Eyjafjallajökull, which famously brought European air traffic to a halt when it erupted in 2010.

    The tour was great! A must do if you are in east Iceland. The guide was very knowledgeable and really seemed to care for the environment, and not just tourist money. Seeing how much the glacier had receded in 10yrs time was very eye opening....More

    We went with Troll Expeditions for the glacier walk at Solheimajokull and they do hiking boot rental if required. Cost is 1,500 ISK. All other equipment (helmet, ice axe, crampons) was included.
