What people say

"This is the outlet glacier of the magnificent Mýrdalsjökull glacier on the southern coast of Iceland. It is one of the most accessible glacier outlets that can be easily reached from Highway 1. You can satisfy yourself with a short observation of it, or you can also go glacier hiking. While walking on the glacier, you will encounter waterfalls and crevices and might even come across some natural ice caves. "
"Sólheimajökull, one of the glacial tongues of the giant Mýrdalsjökull, the fourth largest glacier in Iceland and under which the powerful Katla volcano is located. Of course, just because it is accessible, does not mean that you can venture out on your own. If your idea is to walk through it, YOU MUST HIRE AN EXPERT GUIDE! Going on your own is very dangerous."
"Next stop on the excursion was the “Solheimajökull”. This is an outlet glacier to the icecap of Myrdalsjökull. This glacier was cool to see, as a group, we saw people who were hiking on it from a distance. "
