I have seen many glaciers in other countries. This was very impressive and you could go right up to it and climb on the glacier in tours! I would recommend this sight as a stop in Iceland

If you're going to be in Iceland... this is a MUST. Just being on the glacier and appreciate the scenery, the size of it alone is breathtaking.

Great view and great pictures. The walk is great and the black sand / rock was beautiful. It’s a good hike to the bottom but you can see it with just a short walk. Great for all ages.

This activity involves quite a bit of walking so you need to be able to walk for awhile and be able to climb up some hills. We went with a guide from Arctic Adventures and he was excellent. There was another company and I think...More

I'd highly recommend paying for a tour. Unless you have ice mountain climbing equipment and know what you're doing then you can take the risk. The reason I'm saying this is that everything is ice cold and if you fall, it's... More
