Driving up to Sólheimajökull, a river made of ice that flows at very slow speed down from the south western tip of Mýrdalsjökull is an easy way to get close to a glacier. There is also Arcanum Glacier Café open every day from 10:00-16:00 if you want to rest a little or have a cake!
Warning: never go on the glacier without a guide and proper equipment! It can be extremely dangerous and potentially deadly. At the parking spot near the glacier there are few companies waiting to help you out and guide your way. We reccomend Arcanum and Icelandic mountain guides. (Picture: ©Uli Funke, ulifunke.com)}?>
