Interesting places and scenery near Fosshotel Vatnajökull, South Iceland

The Crystal Cave

For those who find mere ice walking underwhelming and are curious about the mysteries underneath, consider signing up for an ice cave exploration. Iceland offers a myriad of options, among which the Crystal Cave in Breiðamerkurjökull Glacier stands out. This cave, the most expansive in Vatnajökull National Park, emerged where the glacier meets the Icelandic coast. Its interior, a mesmerizing array of textures bathed in countless shades of blue, presents a sight so surreal it demands to be experienced first-hand.

Hiking the Svínafellsjökull Glacier

A journey to Iceland often feels incomplete without experiencing the grandeur of Europe’s biggest glacier. Svínafellsjökull, an extension of the vast Vatnajökull Glacier, reaches into the lush Skaftafell area. From March to December, visitors can embark on enjoyable, straightforward treks across its rugged peaks, azure crevasses, and numerous icy extensions, exploring the ethereal beauty of this glacial landscape.

Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon

Imagine a beach that sparkles as if dusted with diamonds; such wonders await in the mystical southeast of Iceland. Jökulsárlón, a testament to nature's grandeur, is a glacial lagoon and Iceland's deepest lake, inhabited by fish, seals, and shimmering icebergs. Along the coastline, this ice decorates the ebony sands, polished by the waves to a brilliant sheen, crafting a vista of a diamond-encrusted beach aglow under the sunlight.
