Glacier walk on Sólheimajökull glacier with students from the university.

We had amazing day on Sólheimajökull last Sunday with 53 students from the university. Tour started from Reykjavik, after 2 hours of driving we were at Sólheimajökull and everyone got crampons for the walk. We thought everyone to walk on the ice before headed up to on the ice. From the edge of the glacier we headed up all the way and found nice ice caves, dirt cones all kinds of interesting landscape in the glacier. It was quiet difficult hiking the glacier that day because of lot of wind and cold weather for the last couple of days. This was different from most of our tours up because we very far in to the glacier about 4 km.  There is possible to photos from the tour here: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.514692958543817.121007.283931721619943&type=1
