Sólheimajökulll Glacier Hike

Iceland is home to many glaciers that offer hiking opportunities, but Sólheimajökulll is a favorite, thanks to its accessibility and varying colors. Set just northwest of Vík on the South Coast, Sólheimajökulll is one of the several ice caps that connect with Vatnajokull, Europe's largest glacier. Take a walk through a frozen wonderland and experience these different shades of glacier ice, which can appear white, blue, or even crystal clear.

With the help of expert gear and professional guides leading the way, you'll safely walk along Sólheimajökulll, passing deep crevasses and water cauldrons. During the hike, you'll have plenty of opportunities to stop for photos and learn all about the ever-changing landscapes of the Icelandic glaciers. The unique glacial formation is always changing, and many don't realize that these icy giants are connected with the surrounding volcanoes and mountains.

Whether you're a beginner, seasoned hiker, or have experience walking on ice, anyone can enjoy this excursion. A glacial hike is the best way to get up close with Iceland's renowned snowy and icy landscapes.
