Tour Description

Who doesn’t love climbing? Especially when given the opportunity to climb on the 4th largest glacier in Iceland. This is an unforgettable adventure that will test your strength skills, as you will be climbing an ice wall on. This activity is ideal for enthusiastic nature-lovers, who would like to explore the Icelandic glaciers to the fullest.

 

Itinerary

  Our journey starts when we will pick you up in Reykjavik at 08:00 with our 4×4 vehicle. The drive to the glacier lasts around 2 ½ hours during which you can enjoy the astonishing view of the Icelandic landscapes.

Once we arrive at the parking lot of Sólheimajökull glacier we will walk for 20 minutes to the spectacular glacier’s
tongue where we will do a safety briefing instruction and help you gear up. 

  We will cross crevasses and moulins until we find a nice spot to start our climbing. We will go over climbing techniques and various levels so you can get the best out of the experience. 

After 2 hours approximately on the glacier, we will head back to the parking lot full of great memories and photos and we
will enjoy a warm cup of coffee and Icelandic snacks.

After that, it will remain a 2 1/2 hours drive back to your accommodation.

 

We hope to see you soon!
