Tour Description

  This tour is the perfect opportunity for you to hike and climb the magnificent Sólheimajökull glacier of Iceland! We will get to explore the glacier and have the chance to test and practice your ice climbing skills on it. The unique ice formations, and jagged ridges of the glacier will become the highlight of your whole trip!    

                         Itinerary

   We will pick you up from your accommodation with our 4×4 vehicle. It takes around 2 hours to arrive to the first attraction. 

   Our first stop will be the amazing Seljalandfoss waterfall. It is one of the most breathtaking waterfalls in South Iceland and it is extra loved by travelers because you can actually walk behind it!

   After that, we will head to the gigantic Skógafoss waterfall. Expect to be soaked from head to toe if you venture too close!

   Also, you can climb the 370 steps to the top of Skogafoss waterfall and you will be rewarded with an awe-inspiring view over south Iceland’s coastline.       

   Next, after just 20′ of drive we will arrive to the most adventurous part of our trip, to our lovely glacier! We will take a 20′ walk from the parking lot to the spectacular glacier’s tongue where we will do a safety briefing instruction and help you gear up.

  The hike is relatively easy and it can be done by almost anybody. Αfter exploring the glacier for some time we will find a good spot to start our ice climbing session.

   We will go over the climbing techniques so you can enjoy it. The climb will be customized to your skills to get the most fun out of it. No experience required!

   After a 35′ drive we will arrive to Reynisfjara/Black beach! That is a beach like no other. Watch out for the waves and take awesome photos!

   Finally, we will head back to Reykjavik. It is a 2 1/2 hours drive. You can use the time to relax and get cosy in our warm and comfortable jeep. We will drop you safely right in front of your accommodation.

 

  We hope to see you soon!
