Glacier Climbing

I ate spaghetti, the cheapest food you can get in Iceland so I could do something super cool on my last few days in Iceland. For my last full day, I ended my trip with a glacier climb of Sólheimajökull with about an hour of ice climbing with crampons and ice axes. This was the highlight of the trip. We obtained full ice climbing gear from our guides which were amazing. One was from England, the other was from Sweden and looked like twin vikings and acted like the Weasley twins from Harry Potter. They were hilarious and very knowledge about glaciers. I can now mark glacier and ice climbing off of my bucket list. The glacier it self was a bit odd. Being in Iceland, land of the volcano, most of the glacier was preserved in volcanic ash giving cool contours and random little piles of ash from holes in the ice that have long melted away.
