Visit the top of this Glacier using Arcanum Tours they do walking and snowmobile tours. One of the best experiences the wonderful views and the breathtakingly amazing totally exhilarating ride over a snow covered wilderness on your snowmobile is something not to be missed.

We made a quick stop at the "edge" of the glacier. Our guide was a bit of a downer droning on and on about global warming and the potential eruption of the nearby volcano that will destroy everything. But we ditched him and enjoyed the scenery.

That is quite the spectacle. We drove around the whole thing and it just envelopes the mountains, slowly grinding them down. You feel as if you are on a different planet for sure

We stopped here during our South Shore Adventure tour with RE and were more than pleased. I had never seen a glacier in real life and it was such an impressive and majestic site! It is definitely worth the short hike!

simple to access and easy to get close. As tourism rises in Iceland, in a few years there will likely be fences and ropes everywhere so stop here and grab a coffee and listen to the ice break apart

For the geographers and academics, it's an impressive sight. If you aren't in tune with these things, I would recommend a quick Wiki. Definitely worth visiting if you're in the area.
