  • Tour Description

    A glacier walk with introduction to ice climbing

    On this glacier adventure, we combine our popular glacier walk with an easy introduction to ice climbing. As we explore the majestic landscapes of Sólheimajökull glacier, including water cauldrons, ridges, and deep crevasses, we search for a suitable spot to rig up our gear for a short introduction of ice climbing. Here, everyone will get a chance to have a fun and easy ice climbing experience. With the small number of only 6 passengers per guide, everyone should have their time to shine. Don’t forget your camera, you will want to share this experience with your friends and family!
