Overview
The Sólheimajökull Glacier is a popular tourist attraction in south Iceland, but to get a full appreciation of the natural monument requires more than simply viewing it. Strap on your crampons and get to grips with the glacier itself on a small group walking excursion, and benefit from the professional guide’s knowledge and support to ensure a safe, informative, and unforgettable experience.
What to Expect

Meet your guide and board your bus in the carpark of the Sólheimajökull Cafe. Take a short journey to the foot of the glacier tongue, and receive a short equipment introduction and safety briefing from your guide.

Next, put on your ice cleats and enter the glacial valley. Explore the shafts, streams, and crevasses safely with support from your guide, and notice the distinct signs of the glacier’s formation. Learn more about its development as you traverse the glacier’s ridges.

When finished, head back with your guide to your original meeting point, and continue exploring the region with new insight into the iconic glacier.

Worth every penny

My husband and I went on the Solheimajokull glacier expedition today with Jeff the guide. As someone who is terrified of things like this, I can't recommend Arctic Adventures enough! Jeff was an incredible, knowledgeable, safe and fun guide who took us very high up...More

Solheimajokull glacier hike

I did this glacier hike back in Jan. 2017. It was my first glacier hike back then, and I loved it so much (despite my huge fear of heights) that I had to do it again. My second hike on Solheimajokull with Alberto as our...More
