Svínafellsjökull

We travelled to to Skaftafell National Park, did a short but steep hike, and was on our way to the next destination. There was a small sign marked Svínafellsjökull, pointing towards a small gravel road. Feeling adventurous, we steered our little Suzuki Jimny towards it.

What we found at the end of it was this gorgeous sight. For me Svínafellsjökull is the quintessential glacier. Whenever I had pictured a glacier in my mind, this was what it looked like.
