Full description

This hike is for anyone who wants to experience hiking on the beautiful glacier of Mýrdalsjökull. Located underneath the ice cap is one of the largest Volcanoes in Iceland, Katla which erupted last in 1918. You will meet your guide at the Sólheimajökull parking lot where you will receive all the necessary safety gear and hike towards the glacier. There you will get a safety briefing as well as a tutorial on how to attach the crampons to your high ankle boots. Explore the impermanent glacier formations as well as crevasses and moulins. During the hike, you will see the beautiful views of the area, surrounding mountains as well as some volcanic ash on the glacier.

Your guide will be happy to explain these natural phenomena and answer your questions. If you have never been on a glacier, your skilled guide will make sure you will have a safe and enjoyable experience.

Our tour guide was Kevin. The number of people per tour group was decent (less than 15 people). Kevin was very friendly and took us for the hike with a relaxed pace. He also helped each of us with the gear if having difficulties. Overall, the hike covered beautiful spots of the glaciers and it was informative tour. Would recommend.

We’re so happy we did this! This was the best experience of our whole trip. The scenery was amazing. The hike itself was easy and manageable especially thanks to the instructions and gear that they provided us. We absolutely loved our guide. Uza was so helpful and knowledgeable. Her enthusiasm was contagious and made the hike a very enjoyable experience.

A small group with a very personable guide. She conveyed a lot of interesting information in very good and understandable English. Always kept an eye on the group. Only the bad weather shortened the tour by about half an hour. Due to the rapidly changing weather, fully waterproof clothing is a must. (Shoes/pants/jacket/gloves/backpack protection) A backpack is not absolutely necessary. Fill a small bottle with glacier water if necessary ;-)
