What to expect

On this Iceland day tour, you will be guided through the labyrinth of a glacier tongue extending down from the fourth biggest glacier in Iceland. Only two hours from Reykjavík you find the Eyjafjallajökull massif, and just a little further east the Sólheimajökull glacier, a tongue extends down from its mother glacier, Mýrdalsjökull, Iceland’s fourth-largest.

You will go on a safe and easy walk on crampons up onto the ice field where you will discover a wonderland of ice sculptures, ridges and deep crevasses, and learn about the glacier and the effect of the Eyjafjallajökull eruption in 2010 on the glacier and its surroundings. The experienced mountain guides will teach you how to use the basic ice equipment necessary for this tour.

After the glacier walk, you head down to Sólheimasandur to see the famous DC3 Plane Wreck. Included in the ticket is the bus fee for the Plane Wreck Bus. On the way back there’s a stop at the picturesque waterfalls of Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss.

An Iceland glacier walk is a great way to experience nature and a tour on the Sólheimajökull glacier is an ideal way to spend the day!
