Water, volcanism, and gravity are responsible for much of Iceland’s stunning landscapes. Explore how these forces combined to sculpt an island of singular beauty, from icy heights to deep canyons.
Vatnajokull National Park is Europe’s largest national park, protecting nearly 15% of Iceland. See the colossal Vatnajokull Glacier with its many outlet glaciers. Skirt a lagoon bobbing with icebergs in search of steaming volcanos.
Afterward, follow some of that meltwater further afield to the deep canyon of Fjadrargljufur, where moving water erodes volcanic rock, forming an arresting route that snakes through the land.
