Glacier Hike & Ice Climbing Combo Tour

This odyssey to the famed Icelandic glaciers is simply spectacular. The glacier's 'tongue' extends down to the sandy plains of the southern coast. This remarkable setting is marked by jagged rock formations shaped by the ever-shifting glacier. Book this Reykjavik tour today for an unforgettable breathtaking experience.

A certified professional glacier guide will accompany you on this fun and moderate hike to Solheimajokull glacier. You'll be outfitted with specialized glacier gear: a helmet, climbing harness, crampons, and other essentials for this unique glacier hike.

Once equipped, you'll explore this ancient glacier riddled with scenic crevasses. Its formations, ridges, and sinkholes are absolutely profound.

During the next leg, you'll have the singular opportunity to try your ice climbing skills. Yet again, you'll be specially equipped with ice axes, crampons, and safety lines, then expertly instructed on how to climb the ice. This part of the tour is optional.

Having checked off this ice exploration from your bucket list, stop at the stunning Seljalandsfoss waterfall, a wonderfully graceful waterfall which drops around 60 meters into the otherwise tranquil pool below. Then you'll be escorted to the wonderful Skogafoss waterfall. Perched along the Skoga River, cresting over the cliffs, this majestic waterfall consistently produces some of the most profound rainbows. Legend has it that the Vikings buried a treasure behind its rushing waters.

With its amazing ice formations, sinkholes and jagged ridges, Solheimajokull glacier is absolutely an unforgettable site to spend the day. Book your spot on this exciting Iceland tour for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Please Note: Rental gear such as hiking boots, waterproof jackets, and waterproof pants are available to rent for approximately $10 USD each (not included).
