Iceland: Explore glaciers

Natural ice caves under a glacier vary in shape and size, and are of breathtaking beauty. In Iceland, ice caves are accessible between November and March and until April sometimes.

The Country
More than 10% of Iceland is covered with glaciers, enough to discover sumptuous scenery. One way to explore these glaciers is to do an adventure activity such as snowmobiling, hiking or climbing on these glaciers.
You can then discover one of the largest glaciers in Europe, Vatnajökull, which is as big as Corsica but also the glacial lake of Jökulsárlón, both located in southern Iceland

The City
Reykjavik has the honour of being the northernmost city in the world and for many travellers, it is also the first step towards wilderness that promises beautiful adventures. Reykjavík has a lot to offer in terms of entertainment for all ages. Its proximity to nature makes it an ideal destination for outdoor activities. Iceland’s 1000 years of history and culture can be explored in the city’s many museums.
