Glaciers are one of the most mysterious natural wonders in the world. Some of them are even visible from space. With 11% of the total land area covered by ice caps, Iceland is a glacier paradise. Here are the five most amazing glaciers that you must see when visiting Iceland!

1. Vatnajökull

Vatnajökull is the largest glacier in Iceland, and all of Europe as well. With an area of 8100 sq. km this majestic ice cap covers around 8% of the country. Vatnajökull is also the home of Iceland‘s highest peak, Hvannadalshnjúkur and has around 30 outlet glaciers flowing from it. One of those outlet glaciers, Breiðarmerkurjökull, is where the magical glacial lagoon Jökulsárlón is formed.
