What To Expect

Iceland's 4th biggest glacier, Sólheimajökull is an ever changing hub of ancient frozen water. An outlet glacier of Mýrdalsjökull, the glacier is a rugged and raw natural masterpiece and a must do for any adventurous hikers out there. Before the adventure starts, you'll first get a quick introduction to equipment and safety procedures. You'll be taught how to use all the tools you'll need like the ice axes, crampons, helmets, and safety lines. And don't worry - you'll also be accompanied the entire time to ensure your safety throughout the entire hike. Right after the introduction, test out your new ice climbing skills and explore the beautiful crevasse riddled glacier. Find yourself in awe of the fantastic natural ice formations, sinkholes and jagged ridges. The climb is approximately 1 hour long, and you'll spend a total of 3 hours on ice so prepare for the cold. After the climb, on your way back to Reykjavik, stop over at the beautiful waterfall, and take in the sights of one of Iceland's most popular landmarks, Skógafoss - the perfect reward for conquering the challenging ice climb.

    Really worth to join the hiking and climbing tour!!! The guide was nice and patient. The experience is awesome and unique. Must try in Iceland!!! It is my best tour in Iceland. The driver was also talkative and introduced a lot abt view and sightseeing places while driving. Highly recommended

    Nice experience ! No need to bring a lot of things to the travel besides some sandwiches ,drinks and snacks for hiking and ice climbing .
  • poh leng 9 Sep 2017
    It was awesome. Although the glacier are mostly covered with volcano ashes but it was said to protect the glacier from melting. We did get to see some blue galcier from the top. Our guide was nice and explained very well. it's a good experience.

    A good experience, but the guide's accent is very important. It is harder to prepare to climb the ice wall than it is imagined. But it is a great experience to rent a shoe 1000kr once.
