Sólheimajökull glacier is around 656 feet (200 meters) thick, and it’s easy to slip on its icy ground without the right equipment. This glacier walk tour not only provides you a helmet, an ice ax, and crampons but also a guide who gives instructions before setting off on Sólheimajökull. Your guide never leaves your side so you'll feel confident throughout the excursion.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at Sólheimajökull glacier base for this glacier walk tour. First, get set up with all the equipment you need while on the ice and then listen as your guide gives some instruction and tips.

Once you and your group are ready, head out on Sólheimajökull. Follow your guide on the icy glacier, and be careful as you walk past crevasses, sinkholes, and ice ridges. Your guide fills you in on how fast the glacier has melted over the last 15 years and the reasons for this.

Your glacier walk ends back at the Sólheimajökull glacier base.

The guide was amazing and the walk on the glacier was a once in a lifetime opportunity! Would definitely recommend this company if you'are thinking of braving the ice. It is a moderate hike...so be prepared to get your heart rate pumping.

Great Easter attraction with super friendly guide who made the experiance less scary!

We had complete beginners in our group and Lukas made the whole experience less scary and completely enjoyable for all levels. Some of us where more advanced and he had a few 'activities' up his sleeve too!

I'm not sure if maybe it is considered a bit more difficult because of the terrain you could experience. I would definitely send them a quick message to ask.
