A Fun & Adventurous South Shore Adventure Combo
On this South Shore adventure heading to Sólheimajökull glacier, we combine our popular Glacier Walk tour 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 to ice climbing. After a short introduction, everyone will get a chance to have a go at a fun and easy ice climbing experience. After having fun on the glacier, we stop to marvel at two impressive waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. 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.
