Bilbo's Glacier Adventure Tour

Explore Solheimajokull Glacier on a Bilbo's Adventure Tour in South Iceland!

This tour will take you onto the surface of Sólheimajökull, one of the bluest glaciers in Iceland. The glacier tongue stretches out from Myrdalsjokull, Iceland’s fourth-largest glacier. Guided by a local glacier expert and equipped with all the necessary safety gear, you’ll take a nice, refreshing walk along this spectacular glacier tongue.

Your expert guide will tell you all about the glacier, including its inspiring geology, how and when it was formed, and how climate change affects Iceland’s fragile ice fields. They will share a lot of interesting facts while guiding you across the glacier, visiting blue ice moulins and crevasses. You’ll be totally safe and secure, as the guide will be with you every step of the way.

This is a moderate glacier walk, meaning that it is suitable for those people with an average level of physical health and fitness. While you must be capable to walk confidently on an uneven surface, you need not worry because nothing extreme will happen to you on this hike! You can expect some mild ascents and descents and somewhat rough terrain, but no special skills and no previous experience are required for this walk.

After you have explored glacier features and have taken hundreds of photos, you’ll set hike to return to the base camp where your adventure first started.

On the way back to Reykjavik, we will stop by some majestic waterfalls. When the length of the daylight allows us (between mid-February and mid-November) we’ll stop by the beautiful waterfall of Skógafoss which is located in the beautiful Skógar area and is also the inspiration to dozens of folklore tales. We recommend to hike up the right side of the waterfall to see the troll’s face that stares at the waterfall for all eternity after forgetting time and turning into stone admiring Skógafoss.

We will also stop at the stunning Seljalandsfoss waterfall on the Seljalands River which flows all the way down from the famous volcano, Eyjafjallajökull!

Additional Information 

  • What to bring: Warm clothing,  waterproof jacket and pants, hiking boots, head-wear and gloves
  • Due to limited daylight periods, we are not able to stop at Skógafoss in wintertime (16th Nov - 31st Jan). Only from mid-February, throughout the Spring, Summer, and Autumn until mid-November do we stop at both of the waterfalls on this tour
