What a spectacular experience. We hiked the glacier with a small group and our guide was great. She gave us good information throughout the hike and shared some personal experiences. The glacier was breathtaking, I don't think I have done anything remotely awesome to this...More

Great time in the ice caves with transport to the locations and gear provided crampons and hard hat's. The tour guides had a lot of information on the glacier and very friendly. Would highly recommend doing this while your in iceland

The giant Vatnajokull glacier is more astonishing when you set your foot on it. It can be silent, and except for the cold wind sweeping down the icy giant it’s occasionally without any wind, as the conditions changes rapidly. Ice canyons and caves can be...More

This is an opportunity not to be missed, you will need to do this with a guide as this is a dangerous place to be walking on your own. Plenty of companies offer trips and individual guides so take the opportunity before it melts, as...More

Plan on bringing a chair and bottle of wine and sit along the blue ice of the glacier as the sun sets and lights the area with an ethereal blue glow. Don't miss it!

The place offers a lot of hikes and nice views on glaciers, falls, mountains but happen to be crowded during the day. The trail towards the glacier has now a limited interest as the ice has melt down and there is a little lake in...More

Putting it in writing does not do any justice to this majestic glacier. The glacier has multiple colors reflecting off it - volcanic black, torquise blue, white crystals and the sheer size is breathtaking. Please do visit.
