The Glacier Walk is a great adventure, walking on ice is unique. On the half an hour walk to the glacier the path lies over varied landscape formed by glaciers over thousands of years and it's easy to see how fast the glacier has been retreating over the past 15 years. Once you are there the route lies upon the glacier to experience the unique environment and amazing terrain with crevasses, sink holes and ice ridges.
Sólheimajökull is the southernmost glacier in Iceland, the ice is up to about 200 meters thick and the total size with the ice cap Mýrdalsjökull about 600 km2. Underneath the main icecap is the caldera of the volcano Katla, one of Icelands biggest volcanoes.
The Snowmobile tour is the perfect length of time for individuals looking for a scenic fun ride, exploring and experiencing the wilderness, the glacier and the breathtaking views over South Iceland.
After briefing and dressing up we head up to the glacier, mount the snowmobiles and ride to the top of Mýrdalsjökull. On this Snowmobile tour there will be plenty of opportunities to take stunning photographs for you to keep and remind later you of a great day in Iceland.
