Overview

Description

Join us in Glacier Hike on Sólheimajökull Glacier> This is specially for you to explore. 

The Glacier Hike on Sólheimajökull Glacier to enjoy a friendly hike

We will introduce you to the equipment and tell you about safety guidelines you need to explore the glacier. Then, you will take a little walk in the pitch-black volcanic ash and sands. You will move to the frozen glacier tongue-Solheimajokull outlet glacier. Your qualified guide will help you to see the retreating glacier at an alarming rate when you walk along the glacier-filled valley a few years ago. You will see it live. Now, you will see the natural wonder by lacing your crampons at the glacier edge and following the guide. This is a rugged, raw, and changing epic center of the ancient frozen water. 

You will find the glacier hike as an adventure. The adventure is available in very few parts of the world due to the rapid global climate change. There are the primal elements that shape and affect the glacier. They create mesmerizing labyrinths of the ice ridges and deep V-shaped crevasses.

Due to these ridges and V-shaped crevasses, the surface of the ice is scared. Here, you will also see moulins, the big sinkholes that are seen in the black sand below. These sinkholes contribute to draining the meltwater of the ice in water slides and a little waterfall. There, you will see too the ashes of volcanic eruptions that the glacier carries from the distance. More, this ash is also not much old and born out in the distant past. It is a matter of luck for you if you a few samples from the Eyjafjalljökull volcanic ash from 2010. 

Finally, never miss the tour and enjoy the glacier before it disappears.
