Your next stop is Iceland’s scenic southeast. After passing various outlet glaciers belonging to Vatnajökull, Europe’s largest ice cap, you arrive at the stunningly surreal beauty of the glacier lagoon Jökulsárlón. This exceptional attraction sits at the foot of Iceland’s highest mountain Hvannadalshnúkur and offers the unique possibility to explore it up close by taking a guided boat tour between the floating icebergs.
Skaftafell National Park is another area definitely worth a visit. This oasis surrounded by glaciers and black sand plains offers a broad range of hiking options. You will continue through Kirkjubæjarklaustur, the Eldhraun lava field and the Mýrdalssandur plain before you arrive in the Vík area.
