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 sculptures, ridges and deep crevasses awaits discovery.

It's a 2 hour bus ride out to the glacier so plan accordingly. You'll make the usual Reykjavik Excursions transfers and then a stop along the way to grab some food (about 1/2 way into the 2 hours). You'll want to pick up lunch here...More

The glacier is absolutely wonderful, but I wrote about it in another review already, so here I'm going to focus on the tour itself. You get a bus ride to the glacier, which is great, especially last few kilometers - there is rough ground and...More

Hi, Charlotte. Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear you did not enjoy your time with us. Icelandic nature is fickle especially in the fall and spring. When your tour had started, the driver and guide got the news that the road to...More

On an amazing trip to Iceland, this might have been the biggest highlight. Hiking on and drinking directly from a glacier is something I will never forget. Our guide was fantastic and shared interesting facts about the glaciers and how they change, while making sure...More
