Our tours avoid the glacier rush hour by setting out early, and boy is it worth the red eye. Sólheimajökull is an extremely beautiful place to be alive, and even more special when you avoid the crowds. If you have never stepped on rock solid 600 year old ice, then this is your chance for a whole lot of fun.
The views from the glacier are breathtaking so charge your camera and bring an extra memory card. The landscape here is constantly changing, and on your visit you will get to see how much the ice has melted in the last couple of years.
We will provide crampons for a good grip and ice axes (to fight the polar bears😉). Please make sure you bring sensible footwear to explore the ice.
As a small independent company, we offer these tours upon request. Why not experience the majesty of Sólheimajökull glacier using a friendly & personal service, run by a local guide? It's a million times better than the impersonal experience of a big coach tour.

During the tour you will be provided with the safety equipment, and our professional guide who knows the glacier well. Glacier tours are weather dependent. Your safety is of the utmost importance and therefore tours sometimes must be cancelled with short notice due to weather conditions or other safety, therefore we suggest to pay close attention before you begin your journey. This tour is suitable for anyone who is in good physical shape.
