Experience how it feels to walk on ice with the Glacier Walking Tour, an amazing adventure! Witness the unique environment of Solheimajokull glacier.

You will walk on Solheimajokull glacier, which is a part of the Myrdalsjökull glacier, on the south coast of Iceland. It is about 30 – 40 min walk from the base on road 221 to the glacier. You will head onto the glacier to experience this unique environment and look upon some amazing terrain, which include crevasses, sink holes, and ice ridges, after a safety briefing and a lesson in ice walking. You will be led onto the glacier by an experienced and certified glacier guide who will share with you a lot of information regarding the glacier. This is a short and easy tour, making it a great family friendly choice to experience a real Icelandic glacier.
