Meet us on location for a glacier hike where you will marvel over crevasses, ridges, snowscapes and the views of the South. We hike on Sólheimajökull, an outlet glacier of the Mýrdalsjökull ice cap, which covers one of the country’s most active volcanoes, Katla. This sits beside a more famous peak, Eyjafjallajökull, which famously erupted in 2010.
Once at the glacier, your friendly guide will gear you up in the glacier equipment, brief you on the safety, then lead you onto its otherworldly surface. It will be the highlight of your day in the south of Iceland!
This glacier hike is perfect if you are driving whilst in Iceland and want to get more out of your south coast adventure. If you are not driving and want to do a glacier hike then join our South Coast: Fire and Ice tour or our Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon Two Day tour, which both include glacier hikes and depart from Reykjavik.
As with all our trips, be sure to bring along waterproof jackets and pants for the unpredictable Icelandic weather. You must also have strong, waterproof hiking boots that go above your ankle in order to wear the crampons (spikes) that are required on the glacier.
Meeting point is:
Sólheimajökull Car Park
Please be on location at 10:30 am. Departure for the glacier hike is at 10:45 am.
