Glacier hiking is one of the best things you can do in Iceland. This tour turned to be one of my favorite experiences in Iceland, perfectly organised from the start until our return to Reykjavik. The views were simply spectacular, the glacier itself is very impressive and makes you appreciate the power of nature. The tour organizer provides necessary crampons and guidance on the glacier - do not attempt to do this by yourself, it's necessary to have professional guidance on the glacier! Due to it's location on the popular South Coast route, Sólheimajökull is frequently visited by tourists completely unprepared for glacier hiking, but this is very unsafe - the ice is very slippery and you have to have the appropriate gear.
Part of the tours was climbing the ice wall - no previous experience was needed and it was a great chance to challenge yourself and try something new. Great tour overall, would definitely recommend to everybody!
