Sólheimajökull glacier hike is a perfect way to spend the day out of Reykjavík. This tour is available all year around with pick up from Reykjavík. After pick up we drive in an easterly direction out of the city on our way to the glacier. Once there, you get crampons and helmet and safety instructions before we walk to the edge of the glacier over black volcanic ash. Once we reach Sólheimajökull, an outlet glacier of Mýrdalsjökull, we put our glacier gear on and set foot on the ice. Sólheimajökull is quite rugged and as we make our way over the glacier you can expect to be exploring a unique territory. Below the glacier tongue lies the fast growing lagoon, but in the last years, it has almost doubled in size due to the retreat of the glacier. We will choose a different route down the glacier again.
On our way back to Reykjavík we stop at two of the most magnificent waterfalls in Iceland, Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss.
