  • Description:

    An amazing tour that combines two popular activities; super jeep adventure and glacier walk

    We set out from Reykjavík and head east towards the infamous Eyjafjallajökull Volcano. Our route takes us inland in the direction of Þórsmörk Valley. This mountain ridge named after the Norse God Þór is home to spectacular gorges, icy rivers and picturesque landscapes. After traversing through Thor’s Valley, we travel all the way up to Gígjökull, a spectacular outlet  glacier that falls down from the Eyjafjallajökull Crater. There, we can get an idea of the forces that were at play during the 2010 eruption that disrupted air travel in Western and Eastern Europe.  You’ll witness that the impact of the eruption is still very visible on the glacier and the area around it. Continuing east, we arrive at Sólheimajökull glacier, where we go for a short and easy Glacier Walk up onto the ice field (1h30).  As we learn more about the Icelandic glaciers and the effect of climate change, we examine the wonderland of ice sculptures, ridges and deep crevasses. We recommend bringing a reusable bottle to fill up with delicious and fresh water straight from the glacier. On the way back to Reykjavík, we visit the impressive waterfalls, Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss. These two waterfalls have unique features but are equally beautiful.
