A family friendly and short Glacier Walk that features the beautiful, icy wonderland of Iceland’s Solheimajokull glacier. See one of the country’s famous glaciers!
This is an informative and easy glacier walk on Solheimajokull glacier. After meeting your certified glacier guide at our Solheimajokull Base Camp by Solheimajokull glacier, you will be fitted with the appropriate gear (crampons, ice axe and harness). You will hear a short safety briefing and then head off for your Glacier Walk.
Your certified and experienced glacier guide will lead you through a frozen wonderland of different shades of glacier ice. The spectacular colors of the ice can be white, blue or crystal clear. You will safely view deep crevasses and water cauldrons, along with other interesting features of the glacier. During the glacier hike, you will have plenty of photo opportunities. Additionally, your expert guide will share wisdom about the ever-changing landscapes of the Icelandic glaciers, their formation and how these icy giants are connected with the surrounding volcanoes and mountains.
