Begin your glacier adventure by meeting your certified glacier guide at the parking lot by Solheimajokull Cafe. From there, accompanied by your guide, jump in an air-conditioned mini-bus for a short drive to the foot of the glacier tongue. Solheimajokull Glacier is located in Southern Iceland, approximately 2 to 2.5 hours away from Reykjavik. Before you enter the ice, your guide will give you a short introduction to the equipment that you will be using as well as a safety briefing for how to safely explore all that the glacier has to offer. Make your way on to the glacier tongue where you will put on your crampons (ice cleats) and enter the icy valley. Your guide will help the group safely navigate around the crevasses and moulins that mark the glacier, and provide a wealth of information about the formation and development of the the glacier over time. At the conclusion of your glacier exploration, your guide will help guide you back to the meeting point where you are free to explore the surrounding area and carry on with your day.
