Spend at least one day east from Vik to Hofn exploring lava fields, glaciers and icebergs. Great walking opportunities. Take the boat to see the icebergs up close.

Located near Vik, it is a short hike from the parking area to Myrdalsjokull Glacier. A beautiful area and great for taking pictures.

It is easy to get to, free parking, and a path to walk to the Glacier. You can see how much it is melting, plus the volcanic dirt covers some of it. You can hike it or kayak in the water around it - you...More

We were given fantastic advice- walk right up to the glacier (carefully) even when it tells you not to cross. It is a little icy so be careful, but being up close to this glacier is jaw dropping.

This was one of the stops in our Golden Circle tour and it was breathtaking. We were only observing it without climbing it, but if I have the chance to go back, I would certainly join one of the glacier walking tours! It was well...More
