The glacier hike takes place on an outlet glacier called Solheimajökull, coming down from the fourth biggest glacier in the country. The glacier is located between two of the biggest volcanoes called Eyjafjallajökull and Katla. Admire spectacular views while we are driving through the Vatnajökull national park. Vatnajökull is Iceland's biggest glacier and it covers around 8% of the country.
The land of Fire and Ice not only offers breathtaking scenery, but we also find history and sagas behind every corner. Viking fairytales, elves and troll stories, your guide will share all the interesting stories with you. This tour is perfect for families, couples, and solo travelers who want to escape the city.

Even though the hike is created for firsttimers, some of the terrains lead us through icy and steep terrain. If you don't like to be on your feet, the glacier hike may not be for you. We will provide you with all the necessary gear but full mobility is required in order to have a safe trip on the glacier. All our guides have a lot of experience with glacier hikes and they will make a final decision whether you are able to participate or not when we arrive at the glacier. Please remember that if a guide refuses to let you go on the glacier, the decision is made with your safety in mind. The weather situation can change really fast in Iceland. Stormy weather or heavy rainfall can make the glacier inaccessible. In case we can't operate the glacier hike on Sólheimajökull, we have several other outlet glaciers as a Plan B. Fjaðrargljúfur canyon is sometimes closed by the Icelandic government because of flooding or nature protection. In case we can't visit the canyon, we will add other stops. There are plenty of beautiful places we can explore on the South Coast.
