Mýrdalsjökull
If travelling deep into the highlands sounds a bit too much, there are glaciers in Iceland easily accessible along the south coast. Myrdalsjökull glacier is the fourth largest glacier in the country and is home to one of the largest active volcanoes in Iceland, Katla. 4×4 or snowmobiling tours are also a great touring option here however there’s also a special hiking trail. The Fimmvörðuháls pass takes hikers from Myrdalsjökull glacier to its neighbour, Eyjafjallajökull glacier.
