Glacier hike day tour from Reykjavík

In a group of only 6 guests accompanied by experienced and qualified guide we go to the south coast of Iceland, experiencing a spectacular guided trip along rivers, waterfalls and volcanos with a final destination of Sólheimajökull outlet glacier.

  • guided hiking on Sólheimajökull outlet glacier
  • scenic stop at Skógafoss & Seljalandsfoss waterfalls 

Don´t worry about the equipment, the tour includes waterproof mountaineering boots, technical glacier equipment and extra rain gear. Also, low client to guide ratio is a matter of course, same as experienced and certified guides.
