South Coast with Ice-walk | Day Tour | Midgard

    Tour Operator: Midgard Adventure     8 hours     Travel method: Jeep / 4x4     Region: South

Impressive coastlines, thunderous waterfalls, towering ice caps, glistening glaciers! The dramatic Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss, must-see waterfalls. Dyrholaey headland, with coastal cliff features, contrasts beautifully with the black pebble beach at Reynisfjara.

You will also experience walking on a glacier. The walk takes place on Sólheimajökull glacier which forms part of Mýrdalsjökull ice cap. The walk from the base to the glacier takes about 15-20 minutes and takes you through  varied landscape, formed by the glacier over thousands of years. On the way it’s possible to see how rapidly the glacier has melted over the last 15 years.

After safety briefing and a lesson in ice walking we start our walk.  We will walk in amazing terrain, over crevasses, sink holes and ice ridges, experiencing the unique glacier environment.

Sólheimajökull is the southernmost glacier in Iceland. The thickness of the ice is approximately 200 meters. The total size of the  Mýrdalsjökull  ice cap is close to  600 km2.  The volcano Katla, one of Iceland’s largest volcanos, is partially covered by  the ice cap.No special skills are required. The glacier walk  is suitable for people in  generally good health.  Minimum age requirement is 8 years old.

All necessary equipment is provided: crampons, a helmet and a harness.  You will need to wear good shoes (hiking boots or snow shoes) and warm clothes (it gets cold on the glacier even on sunny days).
