Solheimajökull exploration glacier hike ()
Duration of the trip
3 - 3½ hour in total (2½ - 3 hours on the ice)
Use of glacier gear and safety equipment and an English speaking guide.
The Sólheimajökull glacier tongue extends from the great Mýrdalsjökull glacier, down to the sandy plains of the Icelandic south coast. The spectacular surroundings are marked by rugged and majestic rock formations thoroughly shaped by the glacier.
This is an easy walk on crampons up onto the ice field where a wonderland of ice sculptures, ridges and deep crevasses await your discovery. At the beginning of the tour, an experienced glacier guide will teach you how to use the basic ice equipment of crampons and an ice axe as they are required for your trip into this magical frozen world.
