Glacier walk

Glacier walk

 

 

Sólheimajökull glacier is the southernmost glacier in Iceland, and a part of the Mýrdalsjökull ice cap and the volcano Katla. The glacier has been melting very fast for the last 20 years about 55 meters on average a year. So the glacier and the surrounding of the glacier is changing a lot from time to time, making the glacier very interesting in many ways for going on a glacier walk. 

Underneath the ice cap, Mýrdalsjökull is the volcano Katla one of Iceland´s most active volcano as well as being one of the most powerful in Iceland. 

The glacier walk gives you a good idea of how glacier forms and how they developed through time and you are able to see amazing formations on the glacier like holes and crevasses.
