Sólheimajökull is an outlet glacier of Mýrdalsjökull glacier, Iceland’s 4th biggest glacier. The glacier tongue is a rugged, raw and ever changing hub of ancient frozen water; truly a phenomenal place. The tour will start with an introduction to equipment and safety instructions. We will be provide you with all the tools you will need for your time on the glacier: ice axes, crampons, helmets and safety lines and, of course, we make sure that you are always safe on the ice.
