The two-hour drive to Sólheimajökull (don’t ask me how to pronounce it) Glacier on the southern coast of Iceland gave us an opportunity to see the true beauty of the Icelandic landscape— greener than the ride from the airport. We arrived, got our crampons and ice axes, and were on our way. Sólheimajökull is a small glacier, and although a larger glacier feeds into it, it’s receding at a rapid rate (150m last year). Receding glaciers leave behind an unsorted mixture of rocks and boulders that have been picked up along the way, creating a surreal sight— a barren wasteland you’d expect to see on the moon. Sólheimajökull is covered in patches of ash from a nearby volcano, so it may not be the most picturesque glacier— it looks a bit more like snow the day after a snow storm, when it’s been plowed, trampled on, and driven over, but nonetheless, it’s an impressive site! Hikers touring with Arctic Adventures have the opportunity to rappel down into a crevasse and climb out with ice axes. I have a fear of heights. However, I knew if I didn’t do this, I would regret it for a long time. So, I leaned back, didn’t look down, and trusted the rope and our guides. I climbed my way back out so fast that I barely registered what I was doing— the power of nervous adrenaline!

On our way back to Reykjavik, we stopped at Skógafoss Waterfall. This 60 meter (about 200 feet) waterfall is incredible! The force from the water hitting the riverbed below is enough to stop you in your tracks and knock you backwards— nature’s strength at its best and most beautiful.

This is one of the "must-do" tours in Iceland!

Iceland Driver Guided Super Jeep Winter Day Trips & Expeditions

Most of our driver guided super jeep trips are available both in winter and summer with a few exceptions.

The Northern Lights Hunt is one of our most popular super jeep trip but it is only available in winter when it is dark during the night.

The super jeep glacier expedition Arctic Glacier Camp is not running all year round. Arctic Glacier Camp is available from November 1st to July 1st.

The super jeep highland day trip Landmannalaugar Safari and the super jeep highland expedition Landmannalaugar Highland Paradise are not operated in spring time (April - May) because the roads can be inaccessible due to the melting snow which floods the rivers and turns the roads into mud pits.

Our longest super jeep expedition Behind the Mountains, which is 4 days long, is only available in summer and the same goes for the super jeep trip Silent Highland (2 days).

We can of course customize a super jeep day trip or expedition especially designed for your needs and desires with most of the adventures Arctic Adventures offers!
