On the two-hour drive from Reykjavik, you will pass right under the famous Eyjafjallajokull volcano that caused so much trouble in the spring of 2010. Just east of the volcano lies Solheimajokull, an outlet glacier from Myrdalsjokull, Iceland’s fourth-largest glacier. There, we will go on a safe and easy glacier walk on crampons up onto the ice field. As we explore the wonderland of ice sculptures, ridges, and deep crevasses, you will learn more and more about these disappearing giants. Our experienced mountain guides will teach you how to use basic glacier equipment necessary for this tour. On the way back we will stop at the picturesque waterfalls, Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss.
