SafeTravel has issued an announcement regarding sulfur smell in the Sólheimajökull glacier area. At Tröll Expeditions, we’d like to inform that all our tours from Sólhemajökull are safe regardless of this smell. Furthermore, we always advice visitors to go on a guided tours rather than alone when traveling as weather, nature, and road conditions are unpredictable in Iceland.

The announcement goes as follows:

Sólheimajökull: Sulfur smell is at Sólheimajökull and river Jökulsá á Sólheimasandi. People are advised to stay away from the river banks and not to be in lower areas where gasses can accumulate.
