Sólheimajökulll embodies the frozen beauty of Iceland with its vivid blue tones and mountainous backdrop. Volcanic rock covers the vast icy terrain that is scattered with peculiar ice and rock formations, ridges, and crevasses. You can attempt walking on the glacier, but a visit with a guide would be recommended as crevasses could be dangerous for inexperienced hikers. Expect strong winds and an uneven rocky trek that may not be suitable for children or the elderly. Using our world travel planner, Vik attractions like Sólheimajökulll can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Who wouldn't want to visit the glacier once in his life. Here you will have an easy opportunity. Half-hour walk from the free parking lot. In the same parking lot, you can also book a walking tour with their equipment to the glacier or just walk to it. Located about 20 kilometers from VIK village.
