  • Very interesting, follow the guide and walk the glacier. A few suggestions, 1. To join a small regiment, the last private regiment. Otherwise people and others, waste too much time. 2. Arctic Adventure should be counted as the big companies there, too many people. So find a small company, the service will be better. 3. In most cases, shoes need to be rented. The advantage of renting shoes is that they can trickle into the mud.

  • Beautiful scenery This glacier in which it is possible to walk on through tours with specialized companies. It resembles the scenery of Patagonia. Transmit peace to these eternal glaciers and breathtaking nature. I indicate, in addition to the distant observation, to take the tour over the glaciers so that the experience becomes complete.

  • The Glacier seems beautiful but the bridge is broken so you can’t reach it.
  • Nice glacier with two lobes. Yes, the footbridge was still gone (September 2018), but it is still possible to drive to the end of the road (where the small car park is) and than walk toward glacial lake and see some of the spectacular geomorphology related to south-eastern lobe. North-western lobe (smaller) can be also easily visited - you have to take a road to Heinabergjokull, then take a side road to small waterfall, where there is a parking. From there, the walk to the ice margin is about 30 min. There are some marked trails as well.
