We have never experienced anything like this: do go and see this glacier. It's a reasonably easy walk from a car or coach (about 20 minutes) and the scenery is stunning.

We stopped off on this point since there was a sign and it was a good stop to walk around and explore the glacier surround. We didn't go on top of the glacier to do a hike, but enjoyed walking around the base. Be mindful where you are stepping.

Stunning location. Well worth the money to do a hike onto the glacier. (10,000 ISK). We did ours with Arctic Adventures. Jakob the guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. Expensive but worth doing

Not to be missed. A walk on the glacier is something you want to do while in Iceland, and this glacier is as good or better than many for access and beauty

Not having seen a glacier before, it is quite awesome but from afar, it wasn't really jaw dropping. Probably a glacier walk would have been better. Not prepared for the walk, we only managed to look at it from afar and that though we can actually go nearer but the signboard forbid us to go nearer due to possible risks... More

Our hike to the glacier (about 10 minutes) was well worth it. It is amazing to get close to something so special. We did not do a guided glacier walk, thought there were plenty of people who were doing this, it was actually pretty crowded on the glacier.

The south shore adventure tour included viewing the Myrdalsjokull Glacier, a stunning view. Although we could not walk on the glacier, we saw it from close distance. A rare opportunity.

Really amazing to see this glacier up close and realize just how massive it is but also how much it has melted and retreated. There is info so you can understand how glaciers move and why the land looks the way it does.

This was one of the only day trips that I found actually worth it on it's own. Other places I found fine, if they were a stop to something better. This is the something better. Getting to go out on it was great. I just wish our "tour" hadn't been such a big group, I would pay more to do... More
