GLACIER HIKING IN ICELAND - TAKE A WALK ON THE CRAWLING GLACIER
Industry: Adventure       

What better way to explore the land of ice and fire than to take a glacier tour in Iceland? Glacier hiking in Iceland is one of the best ways to become familiar with incredible geographical features that you can’t find just anywhere else.

(TRAVPR.COM) ICELAND - September 14th, 2016 - Leading trekking and hiking company, TREK Iceland offers a once in a lifetime opportunity for your Iceland glacier tour, taking you on a glacier hike on the Sólheimajökull glacier. Your glacier hike in Iceland will surely inspire you and create memories that will last forever.

Located along the southern coast of Iceland, the Sólheimajökull glacier is an outcropping from the larger Mýrdalsjökull ice cap, which covers the mighty Katla volcanic caldera. Sólheimajökull is known as the crawling glacier because it is slowly retreating as the ice melts, creating an ever-changing landscape of ice, rock, pumice, and sand. The glacier hike will take you through this wondrous environment, where you will see beautiful ice formations, sinkholes, and glacial streams. It’s a lesson in geography and history, as you will be able see the layers upon layers of ash running through the glacier, which are evidence of volcanic eruptions dating from thousands of years ago.

Along the way, the hiking guide will choose a suitable ice wall where adventurous spirits can try their hand at ice climbing. All the necessary tools and equipment–such as ice axes, crampons, harnesses, helmets and safety rope–will be provided. After the hike, on the journey back to Reykjavík, you will have the opportunity to stop at the beautiful Skógafoss waterfall, where rainbows often arc across the scene if the weather is favorable!

The experienced guides at TREK Iceland make it their priority to provide a safe environment for hikers, while at the same time sharing their knowledge about the history and geology of the land. As one of the premier companies leading trekking tours in Iceland, TREK Iceland offers year-round trips throughout the country, catering to all skill levels.
