Skaftafell Ice Caves Iceland

Formed by a mix of volcanic eruptions and glacial floods, Skaftafell National Park is the closest one can come to raw wild beauty. This park contains jagged cliffs, 20-meter waterfall “Black Fall”, endless mountains, and most famously the pristine Skaftafellsjökull glacier. One of the most remarkable features of the glacier are the surreal ice caves, which are a dangerous trek. Unlike most of south Iceland, Skaftafell enjoys beautiful sun-filled days during the summer. Arctic foxes and many species of birds can be found throughout the park. Hikers can enjoy the area’s natural splendor and many trails, with a break at some of the local farms.
