Join us on this small-group, 10-hour ice-climbing experience in the Sólheimajökull Glacier. See some great sceneries along the way to and from the glacier. Be part of a group of only 4 travellers accompanied by a qualified guide and encounter all levels of climbing difficulties, ranging from easy, first attempts to harder, steeper walls later.

If you have booked for our pickup and drop off service, we will pick you up from your accommodation in Reykjavik at around 08:00 am. Please note that it can take about 20 minutes to pick everyone up. Drive down the road along the spectacular South Coast of Iceland. See ash mountains, waterfalls and volcanos en route. The journey lasts for around 2 hours, including stops for lunch (own expense) and to use restrooms.

Reach the Sólheimajökull Outlet Glacier before 10:45 in the morning. Wear the required gear at the parking lot and start your walk to the glacier. Travel through the world of ice and crevasses until you can find a decent spot for climbing. Learn the basic movements involved in ice climbing from your certified glacier guide along with feedbacks to improve your skills. Explore different locations and try hurdles with different levels of difficulties.

After about three and a half to 4 hours on the ice, its time to head back to the parking lot. Hop into the vehicle and drive for 15 minutes to Skógafoss Waterfall. Stop to admire the beauty of this cascading body of water. Those who have some energy left can climb up a cliff to enjoy a magnificent view of the waterfall from above. Travel to Reykjavik after that.

You also have the option to join us at our location to participate on this trip. Arrive at the parking lot in Sólheimajökull (Road 221) at 10:45 am. In this case, the duration of the trip will be 5-6 hours (a round trip to and from the parking lot). Want to make this a private tour? Send us a request via the blue 'Make An Enquiry' button.
