While enjoying all the features of the glacier and its spectacular surroundings, you will learn more about the behavior of glaciers and their impact on nature. No technical skills are required for the tour. Your experienced glacier guide will teach you how to use basic glacier equipment that we provide for all Glacier Walk tours, such as crampons and an ice axe.

Customer Reviews

We took the 2-hour Glacier Walk with Icelandic Mountain Guides at Sólheimajokull. We were in a group of about 10 people with one guide. The walk was spectacular --- ice and scenery. Lots of great photo ops.
