ICELAND: Hiking on a Glacier

If you view this photo larger, you can see people in the distance. This helps to show the full scale of this incredible place!

Want a uniquely surreal experience while in Iceland? We'd highly recommend a Glacier Hike. We booked ours through Extreme Iceland, and it was absolutely worth it. After a short journey via bus and lessons on safety, we were able to hike along Svinafellsjokull glacier. This location was used for several movies, including Batman Beyond, Interstellar, and Game of Thrones. It's easy to see why its a popular spot - it truly felt and looked as though we were exploring a different planet.

The guides were super informative, and so in addition to this incredible experience we also learned a lot about glaciers and climate change. While we've attempted to capture this experience through photos - it really needs to be seen in person to comprehend. The ice beneath the surface was a brilliant blue, and the entire surface glittered in the sunlight.

All in all, this is an experience that we will never forget. We would highly recommend Extreme Iceland for their expertise and organization.

What is one of your most memorable travel moments?
