I googled visit a glacier by car and found this! The website was a little old as due to melting of the glacier it is now a 20minute walk away but oh so worth it. Beautiful doesn't really do it justice. It's possible to get on top with a guide but just getting close enough to touch the glacier was... More

About a 30 minute walk from the parking lot. You can get right up to this glacier and the small lagoon had some interesting little icebergs. However, if you are tight for time, skip this one and travel another 45 minutes East on 1 where you will see a much larger lagoon with BIG icebergs that flow out to the... More

My boyfriend and I originally had a guided walk on the glacier booked but missed out due to awful traffic. We did however just show up and decide to take a look for ourselves. We walked right up to where the glacier is and sat next to the water for some time. It was so impressive to see and something... More

Absolutely beautiful. Iceland is one of the most spectacular countries from Glaciers to black sand beaches.

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
