Less than two hours drive from Reykjavík is Eyjafjallajökull glacier, and just a little further the Sólheimajökull glacier tongue extends down from Mýrdalsjökull. We take an easy walk on crampons up on to the ice field where a wonderland of ice...more

It was a great walk and interesting to see. Our guides Lenas and Haukur were fantastic and helpful. It's a long day though as the bus trip to get to the glacier is 2+ hours. The waterfall stop on the way back is wonderful.

This was our 3rd tour with Reykjavik Excursions. I'm glad it wasn't our first because it was a little different from the others. There are no guides on the bus: it's an audio tour. The driver barely spoke English and we received very little information...More

This was simply the best excursion we did in Reykjavik. I didn't really know what to expect, but I figured we'd get to walk on top of some snow covered glacier. I didn't expect that we would get to climb down into holes in the...More
