Less than two hours drive from Reykjavík is Eyjafjallajökull glacier, and just a little further the Sólheimajökull glacier tongue extends down from Mýrdalsjökull. We take an easy walk on crampons up on to the ice field where a wonderland of ice sculptures, ridges and deep crevasses awaits discovery.

An excellent full day out. Our mountain guide was very informative and extremely patient with the slower members of the group and one lady in particular who chose to continually take photos, instead of waiting for our group to stop as he had requested. The...More

We booked this via Reykjavik Excursions and really enjoyed this- it's a long day starting at around 9am and returning to central Reykjavik around 7pm but worth it as you get to see a great deal of Southern Iceland. The trek on the glacier was...More

It was a great walk and interesting to see. Our guides Lenas and Haukur were fantastic and helpful. It's a long day though as the bus trip to get to the glacier is 2+ hours. The waterfall stop on the way back is wonderful.
