Activity description

Enjoy spectacular scenery while ice climbing a glacier on Iceland’s gorgeous south coast and end the day with another magnificent view at Skógafoss waterfall.

Asgard Beyond will pick you up at your accommodation in Reykjavík at 08:00 (it can take about 20 minutes to pick everyone up). Your journey will begin on a 2hr ride down the coast where you’ll catch views of ash mountains, waterfalls, and volcanos. There will be a midway stop for you to buy lunch and use restrooms. At around 10:45, you will find yourself at the foot of the Sólheimajökull outlet glacier. You will gear up in the parking lot and then make your way through a world of ice until the guide finds the perfect spot for a climb. The guides will teach you the basic movement of ice climbing and since you’ll be in a small group of up to 4, you can enjoy a level you’re comfortable with. Feeling too comfortable? Different locations will be explored throughout the day so you will have opportunities to really challenge yourself!

After about 3.5 to 4hrs on the ice, you will make your way back to the parking lot and from there journey on a 15min drive to Skógafoss waterfall for a short scenic stop. Feel free to climb up for a view of the waterfall from above!

Whether you’re looking for easy first attempts or harder steep walls, you can trust Asgard to properly introduce you to the glacial wonder world!
