Sólheimajökull is an outlet glacier of the mighty icecap of Mýrdalsjökull on the South Coast of Iceland. It is one of the most easily accessible glaciers to reach from Reykjavík, just 158 kilometres (98 miles) away.

For those who are based in Reykjavík, it is by far the favourite spot on which to take guided glacier walks, competing nationally for popularity only with Svínafellsjökull in the south-east. It is also an optional trip or otherwise visited on many self-drives and holiday packages, such as this 6-Day Guided Vacation. Those who rent a car can drive to and approach it, but not climb it unless on a guided excursion.
