Mýrdalsjökull activities

Both Mountain Guides (w and Arcanum (w run 1–3hr ice-walking and climbing excursions (6000–11,000kr) through the summer at Sólheimajökull; contact them in advance for details. You don’t need prior experience and they supply crampons and ice axes. Arcanum also offers snowmobile trips across the upper heights of Mýrdalsjökull from Sólheimskáli, a mountain hut 10km inland off the Ringroad along the rough gravel Route 222 (18,900kr for one hour). Call ahead if you need a pickup from anywhere between Reykjavík and Vík, though this will add up to 11,000kr to the price.
