“The easiest way to look a glacier in the eye in Southern Iceland.”— Justin Johnsen
Sólheimajökull is a receding glacier, so the approach and accessibility described here (accurate as of March 2017) may need to be updated regularly.
All glaciers have deadly beauty. While any runner can safely travel to the foot of the glacier, nobody should continue onto the snow or ice of the glacier without a guide, or personal experience with safe glacier travel. Thin snow hides ever changing crevasses, many of which could result in a gruesome, fatal fall.
