A glacier you can drive right up to and take pictures. We loved the opportunity to just experience this on our own. You can book guided hikes and walks.

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

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

I was there in winter season. I know that on some of the glaciers snowmobiling is possible all year around. Pls check with Iceland Tourist Board or some of the adventure companies. Enjoy!
