The South Coast & Glacier Walk tour is a full day tour from Reykjavik. In this tour we will take you to the Sólheimajökull glacier on the south coast of Iceland. It is only about 2 hours drive from Reykjavík, and on the way to the glacier we will visit the magnificent waterfalls of Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. The Sólheimajökull glacier is an outlet tongue of the fourth largest glacier in Iceland, Myrdalsjökull. At the glacier we’ll enjoy the raw and stunning landscape created by the ice, with crevasses, ridges, occasional ice caves, and a whole arrange of ice shapes.
The glacier walk does not require special skills other than being able to walk on an uneven surface. The tour can be enjoyed by people of all levels in good health. All the safety equipment needed for the ice is provided, and after a lesson in ice walking, we will head onto the glacier to experience this unique environment. (Minimum age requirement: 10 years)

Good to know
This tour operates combined with our scheduled South Coast tour, and with the South Coast and Snowmobiling tour. If you have chosen to book Glacier Hike, then you won´t be visiting Vik and the Reynisfjara beach.
You will not be at the lunch stop so you should bring something to have for lunch (in the morning we stop at a fuel station where you can also buy some food).
During the winter, we may find icy conditions on the areas we visit, and the weather may be extremely windy and cold. Ice walkers can be useful, and warm clothing recommended.
