Itinerary


It is a two hour drive from Reykjavík, you will pass right under the famous Eyjafjallajökull volcano that resulted in problems in the spring of 2010, especially on air traffic. Just east of the volcano lies Sólheimajökull, an outlet glacier from Mýrdalsjökull, Iceland’s fourth-largest glacier. There, we will go on a safe and easy glacier walk on crampons up onto the ice field. Our experienced glacier guides will teach you how to use basic glacier equipment necessary for this tour. On the way back we will stop at the beautiful waterfalls, Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss.
