This glacier is visible from highway 1 (the golden circle ring road) for much of the drive around southern Iceland. There are a few turnoffs before you hit the town of Vik where you can walk up over a little hill and see a full...More

Last time we were here the ice came in about 1/4 mile closer. Scary to see how much it has receded!! Now you truly need to hike out with full gear to reach ice. Where you can hike to with regular boots is the volcanic...More

We didn't have a tour, and turned around when faced with a sign indicating that entry was forbidden. It is impressive to see up close (and from a distance), all the same

We've seen glaciers in our travels but none so close to the road allowing you to drive up and stand by it. Well worth a stop!

Never expected to see Glaciers so close and accesible. It is a bit surreal to walk there and see the glaciers in all of its blakc white blue and grey colors. A hike with special spikes is recommended, but even with normal shoes you can...More

I knew we had to drive here to see the tip of this glacier. I love nature and this was something new entirely. I love that we did this :-)

As a Floridian being able to see and touch a glacier is an amazing feat! It's so beautiful - even if you don't hike the glacier but just walk around it.

I was there in winter season. I know that on some of the glaciers snowmobiling is possible all year around. Pls check with Iceland Tourist Board or some of the adventure companies. Enjoy!

If you just walk up yourself to the base of the glacier you can wear anything as long as you have sturdy shoes. If you do the glacier hike out onto the ice you have to go with a guide and they provide harnesses, crampons... More
