a south coast must-do adventure
We will meet at Sólheimajökull parking lot. There a trained glacier guide will welcome you and give you the necessary safety equipment for the glacier hike which includes ice crampons, ice pick and a helmet. The guide will not leave you hanging but show you how to wear and use the equipment for the hike. Once everyone is ready we'll make our way to the ice where we'll put on the crampons and enter the glacier.
Now you've entered the wonderland of the ever-changing outlet glacier. Wind, weather and natural phenomenons such as eruptions will continue to form the glacier every day, opening ice caves, melting water into huge mulans and forming crevasses and ice cones to name a few. The hike is not difficult or physically demanding but you will need to stay focused, making sure not to tip over and trust the crampons to do their jobs.
