Downhill Glacier Biking in Iceland

Glacier biking Sólheimajökull IcelandWhen walking around the Sólheimajökull glacier in Iceland, I’ve sometimes had the crazy thought: “Is it possible to bike around this glacier?” Of course I always thought it was a bit crazy and never ended up doing it. Well, some of my co-guides at Icelandic Mountain Guides had the same idea and unlike me, acted upon it. They took their mountain bikes and cruised around and down the Sólheimajökull glacier.

Although this is not one of their scheduled tours, they just began offering some interesting bike tours. They’ve made some cool videos for them that I’ll post soon.

Well you if you want learn all about glaciers and have a pretty awesome experience on the Sólheimajökull Glacier you can check out the tours advertised on that sign.

For all you Germans check out this video of Olli (Oliver Pocher Show) climbing on an Icelandic glacier with a friend of mine from Icelandic Mountain Guides.
It’s pretty funny even if you don’t speak German.

Here’s a picture I’ve taken while guiding a tour on Sólheimajökull. I love this glacier because it changes so fast and because there is so much waterflow on it’s surface and few crevasses the water tends to create awesome formations such as this ice tunnel.
