This day trip from Reykjavik was well worth the money and the distance travelled. We went in a super jeep up onto the glacier, where the guide found us some fantastic ice caves to go inside. The ice appears in all sorts of colours from...More

We were given fantastic advice- walk right up to the glacier (carefully) even when it tells you not to cross. It is a little icy so be careful, but being up close to this glacier is jaw dropping.

Travelers can just drive car to the carpark and walk close to the lakeside to see this glacier closely if not planning to join any glacier walk tour, its totally free and worth to drive if passed by Skogafoss.

The view is very impressive from every point of view. A different type of glacier. Take a tour since they have a lot to tell.

We went there on the 6th March and we would not have been able to drive there ourselves. It was necessary to go in a super jeep tour, and we even saw one of them get stuck in the snow, but obviously they know how to get out... More
