Overview

While many tours in Iceland make pit stops at glaciers—the country is, after all, full of them—fewer take you over them and close enough to discover their interesting features. With this tour, take an easy glacier hike to see ice formations, crevasses, and water cauldrons that you’d miss just stopping for a look. Your climbing crampons are provided, and the guided hike is offered 2-3 times a day so it’s easier to fit into your schedule.
  • Hike on a glacier instead of just stopping by for a look
  • Explore Sólheimajökull with a guide, who takes you to easily find ice formations, crevasses, and cauldrons
  • All safety equipment and crampons are included
  • This tour is offered several times daily, and fits easily into your vacation schedule

Small group, excellent guide

We had an amazing hike on Solheimajökull, the weather was really nice and our group was with a very experienced guide, Tomas. Our 3 children (10,12 and 14 years) really learned a lot about glaciers, seeing and hearing at the same time. I felt safe at all times, even when we were at the white part of the glacier, quite high up...

Ellie our guide was fantastic. We learned a lot and it was very scenic. Our children ages 9 & 11 also did the glacier hike and really enjoyed it.
