Ever wanted to hike a glacier? Come along glacier hiking in Iceland on Sólheimajökull. Sólheimajökull is located on the south coast of Iceland. Sólheimajökull is the southwestern outlet of the Mýrdalsjökull icecap. The glacier is 8 km long and 1-2 km wide and is the most southern glacier in Iceland.
