An excursion that takes you out onto the frozen glacial tongue of Solheimajokull, this is the opportunity for visitors to Iceland to experience a hike over the surface of a glacier itself.
Accompanied by an expert guide, guests will be equipped with crampons, which will be used to hike up onto the ice field. Here, a wonderland of natural ice sculptures, ridges and crevasses await. Along the way, you can try your hand at ice climbing on one of the area’s impressive ice walls (equipment provided).
Guests will spend approximately 4 hours on the glacier and all glacier gear and safety equipment are included. We ask that you bring warm clothes, rain gear and hiking boots. A stop will be made en route for you to buy lunch to take with you on the excursion.
This tour is available with transfers from Reykjavik or make your own way to the Solheimajokull car park.
