Skaftafell | Vatnajokull National Park Reviews & Ratings

  • Summer snow. Very beautiful landscapes, not so hard to climb. We have walked in cold water... Arctic Water ? 😌😂 Very nice trip. It's just terrific to see the consequences of climate change 😭 btW

  • Great waterfall and very nice park. Good infrastructure and very helpful staff. Gift shop have a lots of interesting things to buy. Especially books and photo albums about Iceland

  • This was one of the major highlights of our trip. Such an amazingly beautiful place. We also stayed at the campsite next door and it was great. We used arctic adventures for our glacier tour. Their guides and staff were very friendly but I wish they had been upfront that we basically got forced to rent boots from them for 1000 ISK on top of the cost of the tour. But this review is of the national park which had nothing but great things in store for us!!!

  • Absolutely amazing glacier hike! Definitely glad that we went on a guided tour of the "safe" one

  • Beautiful hike to get to the falls with really dramatic landscapes. Waterfall is also very cool. Highly recommend heading out to this area!!
