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.
- Pros:An icy wonder of glaciers & icebergs, magnificent scenery!
- Cons:A distance from Reykjavik
It was a tough climb with all the heavy clothing and deep snow. more travel advice
Our first stop was a visit to Vatnajokull Glacier including snowmobiling to a mountain summit. This glacier is larger... more travel advice
