  • Tour Description

    A fun and adventurous day on the South Shore

    On this South Shore adventure heading to Sólheimajökull glacier, we combine our
    popular glacier walks with an easy introduction to ice climbing and visits to the two
    impressive waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. 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 to ice
    climbing. After a short introduction, everyone will get a chance to have a go at a fun
    and easy ice climbing experience. This tour perfectly combines the natural exploration
    of a glacier walk with the thrill of ice climbing in a fun and accessible way. Don’t
    forget your camera, you will want to share this experience with your friends and family.
