A Glacial adventure! Start your tour with a day at leisure and discover Iceland capital Reykjavik – a city that combines culture, art and history, overlooked by the stunning Mt Esja. Explore a frozen wonderland. Blue Ice is a glacier hiking & ice climbing tour to Sólheimajökull glacier on Iceland’s south coast. Also included is a stunning South Shore tour. Black Volcanic beaches, unlike any beach you have ever seen.
Explore the world’s most northerly capital. A good start to your Iceland experience. The main tourist sites of Reykjavik are easily visited by foot or by bus. The main landmarks are The Pearl, Hallgrímskirkja church, the National Museum of Iceland, the harbour and the famous 101 Reykjavik neighbourhood. A walking tour can be added as option, if you would prefer to maximize your first day.
This is your chance to visit a glacier and not just any glacier, this trip will take you to the frozen glacial tongue that is Sólheimajökull.
It is a magnificent phenomenon, a rugged, raw and ever changing hub of ancient frozen water. We will explore the crevasse riddled outlet glacier with its amazing ice formations, sink holes and jagged ridges accompanied by an experienced glacier guide. Along the way we will find an ice wall on the glacier and try our hand at ice climbing.
You will be provided with all the tools you need: ice axes, crampons and safety lines, making sure you are very safe as you brave the heights.
On the way back to Reykjavik we stop at the beautiful Skógafoss waterfall. On this trip you get to see and do what most of the population will only dream about and very few ever try. Why not be adventurous and explore the amazing crawling glacier?
