What you'll do

Once we meet and introduce, we will start with some glacier gear, Helmet, Harness, Ice Ace and Crampons. Most of the glaciers that I work are short distant, so within gearing you up, to be on ice, it's an average of 30 to 40 min on mostly easy walking terrain. Once on the ice and after some briefing on behaviour and safety, we will start the hike. The hike last around four hours, which is the perfect amount of time to be on a glacier. We will explore the plateau of the glacier in detail, going near crevasses and moulins that will take your breath away and if the weather permits it, we will have the best view possible, Sea, Mountain, Islands, river, lake and a Glacier on one shot. In this tour I'd like to show you how the glacier works and how it shapes itself and the surroundings. How it's form and what's on it, how it sounds and how it taste. We will create a moment that will last forever, that possibly will change how you see the planet.

Juan

For five years now I have been lucky enough to spend my day to day, in one of the most amazing environments on the planet, glaciers. With a background on Scuba Diving, caving and hiking, I've been delivering experiences to people all over the world for over 10 years and enriching my life with their company. Glaciers are a must visit while in Iceland, but also a must visit in your life time. Studying them and help to protect them it's an honour and more than a job it's a lifestyle. One can only admire this beautiful landscape and feel humble.

Where you'll be

Solheimajokull stretch by 5 km, full of surprises and beauty. It's part of the fourth larger ice cap in Iceland, Myrdalsjokull, and under it, lies Katla, one of the many active volcanoes in the island. Outstanding scenery that we will explore in deep.
