Glacier Walk: With Ice Climbing | Icetour

Glacier Walk: With Ice Climbing

from ISK 19,900
This glacier adventure will give you the experience of our popular glacier walk and an easy introduction to ice climbing.

About the Glacier walk: 2 hours Sólheimajökull

On this glacier adventure, we combine our popular glacier walk with an easy introduction to ice climbing. As we explore the wonderland of ice sculptures at Sólheimajökull glacier, including water cauldrons, ridges, and deep crevasses, we search to find a suitable spot to rig up our gear for a short introduction to ice climbing. Once we are rigged we make sure everything is safe so all participants can enjoy a fun and easy ice climbing experience. Furthermore it is important to notice that the small number of only 6 passengers per guide will give everyone their time to shine. In addition to this we must remind you to not forget your camera, since this is an experience you will wish to share with your friends and family!

The Sólheimajökull glacier tounge extends down from the fourth largest glacier in Iceland Mýrdalsjökull.
