after checking out the black sand beach, we headed on our for our glacier hike on solheimajokull glacier. i thought i would be totally fine because i walk everywhere in toronto, but guys, i was dying walking those inclines. i was slowing down to a snail's pace and just wanted to crash on a couch! but! we made it and it was a pretty neat experience and now we can say that we've hiked on a glacier.
it's about a 20 minute walk from the base camp to the actual glacier and that's because it's receded so much over the years. pretty sad when you think about it.
