    What to Expect
    Your tour begins with pickup from your Reykjavik hotel at 7am, when you’ll board a climate-controlled vehicle destined for Iceland’s south coast.

    Following a scenic 2.5-hour drive to the Sólheimajökull Glacier, you’ll disembark the vehicle and receive an introduction to the safety gear you’ll be using. Then, once your crampons are securely fastened and your ice axe is in hand, you’ll set off on a 1.5-hour hike of the glacier.

    Delve into frozen crevasses, discover hidden caves, and marvel at streams of bright turquoise water as you learn about the glacier’s development over time.

    Your next stops are the Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls, two of 20 waterfalls that pepper the lush banks of the Skógá River. The tour concludes with hotel drop-off around 6:00pm.

    If someone told me I would do this type of ice hiking, I would not believe it. It is an amazing experience, not only because you are not walking on your shoes, but also because you are stepping on ice all the time, which is absolutely akward. Also you fear that you are going

    We had a fantastic hike with Vjeran in the Solheimajökull. He was a real expert in volcanos, glaciers and glacier hiking. Everyone noticed he loves what he does. Most important: We always felt absolutely safe. All in all we had an unforgettable day.

    Vjeran was our guide for the glacier tour. He was extremely knowledgeable about the glacier and volcano. We felt very safe and had a fantastic time. Would recommend to anyone visiting Iceland. Waterfall stops were wonderful added bonuses.

    Our family enjoyed our trip to the South Coast. Be prepared for a long day. The highlight was the Glacier Hike on Solheimajokull Glacier. We loved our Glacier guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and great with our children ages 13 and 16.
