Combined hiking & beginner ice climbing on Sólheimajökull Glacier from the capital Reykjavik in a day. Hike the glaciers and climb the ice on this epic glacier hiking Iceland tour!This tour offers you an opportunity to go where not many people have ventured. Sólheimajökull is a glacier “snout”, part of the Myrdalsjokull ice cap, and this is where the tour will take us. One of the most breathtaking glaciers in Iceland, this unassuming mass of ice is awe inspiring for everyone who sets foot on it. Years of ice shelf movements have led to the development of sinkholes, crevasses, ridges and ice formations that we will explore on the tour.Transfers are available from Reykjavík for this tour and after the day’s activities a stop at Skógafoss waterfall will have you marvelling at the power and beauty of nature.
