We took the 1 hour duck boat tour and it was great. We were able to see these giant icebergs up close. Even got to taste an iceberg. You can watch the icebergs move around and float out to the see. Dress warmly but enjoy...More

Svartifoss waterfall was this photographer's destination. and we were not disappointed. hiking over well-defined and constructed paths, our uphill efforts were rewarded with an overview of the waterfall and later, close-ups of the fall and its adjacent basalt columns. memorable!
Take a hike to soaring waterfalls, valleys, and woodlands. Home to the Skaftafellsjokull and Svinafellsjokull glaciers. A great day trip on foot and in car brings you right up to raw nature. Take the time to visit the national park information center for a beginning...More
This waterfall is several is several kilometers from the parking lot, but worth the walk. It is is narrow but spills over a cliff with exposed hexagonal columns of basalt. Pretty mountains and glaciers are visible as well
Since we only had a day at Skaftafell, we chose to use our time to hike to the Svartifoss waterfall. There are a couple ways to get to the waterfall; we chose to go up to it one way, and came back down another way....More
If you wish to have a picnic here, make certain you park in the farthest parking lot! There you have access to easy parking and don’t have to lug your supplies a considerable distance from the main (and very overcrowded) parking lot.

Hi there. Yes, you can get to both the National Park and to the glacier's edge. Upon entry (paid parking) you will find some very helpful maps, along with a tourism station. The park and falls are to the left and the glacier walk to the right. Glacier walk is beautiful and very flat. (easy hiking). You can also take a paid Glacier walk with a group (about $200 per person) to get on top of the Glacier. You need to reserve in advance at the tourism hut. I did not see a vew to svinafellsjkul. Have fun!
