Well known for great outdoor activities, Iceland is full of fantastic spots to enjoy. And on this full day trip, you will get to enjoy ice climbing on the spectacular Solheimajokull glacier.

This trip will last approximately 10 hours. The trip will begin at approximately 8:00 am, when we pick you up from your hotel in Reykjavik. From there, we will drive for 2 hours to the Solheimajokull glacier, which is located near the southern coast of Iceland. Once there, based on your skill level, we will choose the perfect site to climb. And because the glacier is so large, there are sites for people of all levels. And at the end of the day, we will transport you back to your hotel in Reykjavik.

The scenery around Solheimajokull is incredible. And during our glacier hike you will get to soak in the tremendous glacial environment that stretches as far as the eye can see.

Along with making sure you have a great time, we will also help you learn the basics of ice climbing. Some of what we will instruct you on includes anchor building, belaying, various ice climbing techniques, communication and much more.

While this trip is open to people of all levels, because of the physical nature of ice climbing, it is important that you are in good physical condition.

From easy, low angle climbs to difficult overhangs, the Solheimajokull glacier has every kind of ice climbing possibility you can think of. To join us on this trip, all you have to do is send us a request.
