Iceland is truly blessed with glaciers, which cover 1/9th of the island's surface. The most wonderful site is Vatnajökull, the island's treasure with its 3243 square meters and close to 1 mile of thickness in some areas. Today, you have natural spectacular safari courses given in specially-equipped four wheel drives by experienced guides.
