    Join us on one of Iceland’s most popular day trip from Reykjavík, yet different with us.

    In a group of only 6 guests accompanied by experienced and qualified guide we go to the south coast of Iceland, experiencing a spectacular guided trip along rivers, waterfalls and volcanos with a final destination of Sólheimajökull outlet glacier. Our personalized glacier-hiking trip takes you along the riddles of the glacial wonder world. Experience the effects of climate change first hand on this fun and exciting tour that no one should miss out on while in Iceland.

    In just one day you will experience:

    • spectacular South coast of Iceland
    • guided hiking on Sólheimajökull outlet glacier
    • scenic stop at Skógafoss & Seljalandsfoss waterfalls

    Don´t worry about the equipment, the tour includes waterproof mountaineering boots, technical glacier equipment and extra rain gear. Also, low client to guide ratio is a matter of course, same as experienced and certified guides.
