A glacier hike is a great way to experience Icelandic nature. On this full day, small group, guided tour, you will walk on the Slheimajkull glacier tongue, which extends outward from Mrdalsjkull. From here you will take an easy 3-3.5 hour walk on crampons up on the ice field, where you will learn more about the glacial wonderland of ice sculptures, ridges, deep crevasses, and why the glaciers are melting and disappearing.

    This was a fantastic trip. Our driver was Albert and he was so informative and friendly. He went above and beyond to ensure we had a good trip. Bane who was our glacier guide was very nice and had a great sense of humour 10/10 recommend

    Great and informative guide, the trip was an amazing opportunity to get onto a glacier that’s quickly retreating and learn about the dynamics of the process.
