Walking on the ice!

Svínafellsjökull is the name of the glacier we're going to venture out on, an outlet glacier of the mighty Vatnajökull located in Skaftafell National Park with breathtaking views on the surrounding mountains and glaciers. Before we start our journey our experienced glacier guide introduces us to the use of crampons and ice axes and gives us some general instructions on how to behave on the ice - means to guarantee a save journey. We then venture out into this wonderland of frozen snow, passing deep gorges, called crevasses, and ice formations in all shapes and sizes- a walk through the exhibition of the greatest sculptor on Earth: nature.
