Below are a few photos from our amazing time in Iceland
Icelands Glaciers are majestic bodies of ice nestled in between mountain ranges.
Solheimajokull glacier is the southwesten outlet of the Mýrdalsjökull icecap – which is an impressive ash and ice glacier just north of the small town Vik. You can walk up to the edge of this ice cap glacer if you don’t want to do a glacier walk. The Mýrdalsjökull ice cap covers the active volcano Katla. It’s smaller ice cap neighbour, covers the volcano Eyjafjallajökull which erupted back in 2010.
Vatnajokull is a huge glacier ice cap on the south east of the island. It’s the biggest glacier in Iceland and there are plenty opportunities to see and photograph this huge glacier along route 1. One of the most impressive stop offs is the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon where icebergs congregate before flowing out to the ocean. Some of the smaller icebergs get washed back up on the beach and you can walk among them before they melt. Just up the road from Jökulsárlón is the smaller but still very impressive Fjallsarlon glacier lagoon.While driving from Hof to Jökulsárlón you come across the Kviamyrarkambur glacier.
Skaftafell National Park which is part of the bigger Vatnajökull National Park is in the south of the island near Hof.
