Let’s start with Why. First, Iceland looks like this:
See those big white areas? Those are glaciers. About 11% of Iceland is covered in glaciers, and they are fairly accessible.
Have you ever seen a glacier? It’s pretty amazing to see one in person, to touch it, feel it, smell the ice. You can walk on them with special equipment attached to your feet, called crampons. They look like giant spikes, because… they are. With these babies on, you can walk on ice like Spiderman walks on the sides of buildings.
If that’s not your thing, but you want to get outdoors in Iceland just the same, consider an Iceland Day Tour in a Super Jeep. No, they’re not really Jeeps, they’re Land Rovers, Nissan Patrols, and Toyota Landcruisers, all specially outfitted with huge tires, radios, snorkels (for river crossing – no kidding).
