I did not dress for hiking. Luckily this is probably the only glacier reachable with 7cm heels. I would still recommend waterproof clothing and hiking shoes for this. The "road " to the glacier is covered with all sizes of rocks, steep in some places,...More

I knew we had to drive here to see the tip of this glacier. I love nature and this was something new entirely. I love that we did this :-)

As a Floridian being able to see and touch a glacier is an amazing feat! It's so beautiful - even if you don't hike the glacier but just walk around it.

Unexpected visit to a glacier. Good signs on the high road 1. Nice walk to the gal ier. Only under supervision you can really get to the glacier. Without supervision up to 500m. Impressive view

Mýrdalsjökull combines all colours of nature at the same time. White from glaciers, black from sand, green from the grass and brown from the mountains combined with blue skies to create a big colur palette. To walk on the glacier, you must have the proper...More

We went snowmobiling on top of this glacier, just incredible. The sheer size of it is hard to get to grips with and the snow was knee deep - all whilst being on top of the Katla volcano!

Walking on and inside a glacier would be a nice thing to tick off your bucket list! As with many glaciers today, this one is shrinking and in retreat. Easily accessible by road, parking is free and there is a cafe / toilets - don't...More

This area was very pretty, site of Stars Wars filming. You need to go with a guide to reach this area in the winter.

We very much enjoyed this experience while you can't climb the the ice easily alone you most certainly can enjoy the experience without a guide. We didn't go far onto the glacier we got fabulous photos and had no issues wearing boots and snow clothing.

I was there in winter season. I know that on some of the glaciers snowmobiling is possible all year around. Pls check with Iceland Tourist Board or some of the adventure companies. Enjoy!

If you just walk up yourself to the base of the glacier you can wear anything as long as you have sturdy shoes. If you do the glacier hike out onto the ice you have to go with a guide and they provide harnesses, crampons... More

Not sure when you're going but I'd recommend hiking boots. They should provide all of the gear you need on the tour.
