This in-depth glacier tour will take you through some glacier history in Iceland. On this thrilling glacier hike, you will get to explore the wonderful Mýrdalsjökull and Sólheimajökull glaciers. Your knowledgeable glacier guide will show you how the glacier’s been changing over the last decades and how it’s been affected by global warming. So, gear up and get ready to explore some glaciers!
This is a glacier-friendly hike because we care about nature and preserving it for future generations.
We'll begin our tour in the base camp of Sólheimajökull glacier, where you will meet your guide and put on the glacier gear. Then we'll head towards the glacier lagoon. We'll see the markings of the glacier that's been retreating since 1998. We'll go over the old borders and get closer to the icebergs coming straight from the glacier.
Afterward, we will head towards the terminal face, exploring the ice sculptures formed by the natural thawing. We'll hike to the top of the glacier, where we'll see markings of the "highest point of the glacier," which is yearly updated by students of the University of Iceland.
During the tour, we will have breaks and plenty of picture opportunities.
