Interesting places and scenery near Fosshotel Vatnajökull, South Iceland

Crystal Cave

The Crystal Cave

If walking on ice isn’t enough for you and you’re keen to see what lies beneath, book yourself in for an ice cave tour – Iceland has plenty to choose from! Perhaps one of the best-known is the entrancing Crystal Cave, hidden within the Breiðamerkurjökull Glacier. The largest ice cave in Vatnajökull National Park was formed as a result of the glacier hitting the Icelandic coastline. The interior is a dream-like study of textures, coloured in fifty shades of blue – it must be seen to be believed.

Hiking the Svínafellsjökull Glacier

For many visitors, a trip to Iceland is not complete without paying a visit to Europe’s largest glacier. Svínafellsjökull is a tongue of the monumental Vatnajökull Glacier, stretching right to the verdant region of Skaftafell. Tours are generally available from March through to December and involve fun and easy trekking across the jagged ridges, blue crevasses and many glacial tongues of this otherworldly ice cap.
Jokulsarlon lagoon

Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon

If you want to see a beach that glitters like diamonds, the magical southeast of Iceland will make your wish come true. Jökulsárlón is one of Mother Nature’s greatest triumphs; a glacial lagoon and the deepest natural lake in Iceland, waters broken only by fish, seals and glowing chunks of ice. Head down to the seashore to see more of this ice dotted amongst the black sands, polished to sparkling perfection by the tides and creating the impression of a beach littered with diamonds, shimmering under the sun.
