Ice Climbing & Glacier Hike


We start at Sólheimajökull parking lot ( see location on map) we will give you some glacier gear and start the 15 min hike to the glacier. (This is an easy hike on gravel road)

At the front off the glacier we put on the glacier gear and show you how to use it.

When we are on the glacier we let you climb on a easy ice wall to teach you basic skills to ice climb. After that we try to climb in 3 different locations on the glacier to let you explore different type of climbing, from easy to hard.

Our guides will also show you the wonders of the glacier, such as crevasses and moulins.

Its good to take some lunch and water with you.

This is perfect tour to see the glacier and try out some ice climbing with a local guide.
