Walked through the Falljökull glacier (Vatnajokull) guided by Melrakki Adventures, what a nice experience! You must take a guide to go there, otherwise it's too dangerous. We got the chance to see a nice blue ice cave too. With Oddur the experience was great! Very recommendable!

Beautiful. Take a deep breath and breathe in the fresh air! We were there with almost no other people and were able to spot a couple of seals playing in the lagoon. We also got to see one of the ice bergs breaking. Soooo cool!

This thing is huge. I drove all day with it on my left all day. Respect. It fills valleys (and carves them)

The glaciers in Iceland are visibly melting so don't lose any opportunity to visit the massive ice surroundings. Once you're up there it's just you and the large mass of ice, cold and peace. There are glacier hikes, jeep tours or snowmobile tours if you want to touch the cold of Vatnajokull. A must-visit destination with an unique experience!

This glacier covers 8% of Iceland so you see "arms" of it in several locations. The whites, blues, and grays of the glacial ice look beautiful creeping down between craggy mountains in many areas in southern Iceland. We stopped at one of the glacial lagoons for an up close and personal look. The size is hard to imagine but makes more sense when you see a model of the country and then see the size of this glacier. Amazing!
