Höfn Travel Guide: 62 reviews and 167 photos

One of the highlights of my Iceland trip was experiencing the beautiful icy wonders of Vatnajokull Glacier, and cruising the Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon. The sights experienced that day, glaciers, snow & icebergs, are probably how most visualize Iceland, an incorrect pre-conceived notion that Iceland is all ice! In reality it comprises only 10%, the terrain a diversity of black & moss covered lava fields, desert, green pastures and mountains, quaint fishing villages, rocky coastlines, fjords & geological wonders galore. But for now, back to the snow & ice.....

We booked a day trip with Reykavik Excursions, not cheap by all means, over $300 U.S., but well worth it. Our trip began with a 55 minute flight on a small 20 seat plane from Reykavik to Hofn. From the Hofn airport we boarded a bus that took us to our destinations.
