Amazing trip. Well worth seeing. Stunning scenery and just amazing to walk on glacier and ice cave. It’s a long day but worth it and we stopped at two waterfalls also. Bring packed lunch as time for food stops is tight. Wear warm clothes and hats for under helmet.

Our original tour was cancelled last minute due to the weather (which is not unusual for Iceland). Instead, we were given a south coast tour with stops at Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss Waterfalls but then in the middle of the day, we were told that we would be doing a glacier hike on solheimajokull. Highlight of my life. Our guide made the best day out of a cancellation and he made it a great day. Highly recommend

What an experience of Iceland! Loved the caves and breathtaking scenery and the waterfalls are spectacular!! The guides were knowledgeable but fun and we all had a great time and took some amazing photographs. The only downside is that it's a long way and lots of time on the bus which is boring 💤
