Description

Experience Sólheimajökull glacier tongue at first hand

Get picked up from Reykjavík for your Glacire Experience and get a tour of the south coast and a visit to two of the grandest waterfalls of the south coast in addition to your glacier hike. We pick you up at your accommodation in Reykjavík and take you to Sólheimajökull glacier for your hike. The glacier hike is an adventure like no other, and with the rapid rate of global climate change this popular activity is only available in very few parts of the world. You will see how the primal elements shape and affect the glacier, creating mesmerizing labyrinths of ice ridges and deep v-shaped crevasses that crisscross and scar the surface of the ice. Not to metnion the big sinkholes, called “moulins”, that sometimes have drilled their way through the glacier, draining the meltwater of the ice through little waterfalls and streams. The glacier also carries with it ashes of volcanic eruptions from the distant and not so distant past. On the way back to Reykjavík we will stop at the magnificent Skógarfoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls. A great bonus to your glacier hike.
