National Parks

At this amazing national park come and awe at the beautifully rugged scenery, breath-taking mountains, beautiful glaciers along with the huge range of flora and fauna. In fact, Skaftafell, which is Iceland’s second largest national park, possesses half of Europe’s biggest icecap, Vatnajokull. What’s more, here is where some of the country’s most precious natural pearls can be found.

Alongside some of Iceland’s most prized treasures, Skaftafell National Park is also a brilliant place to come to hike around the many different networks of expansive trails. The park wardens offer various regular guided walking tours for all you keen hikers, whereas those who prefer to enjoy views whilst seated can take one of the daily bus tours. These bus tours take you up to the volcanic Laki area plus Jokulsailon.

There are plenty of camping services available here too, including big camping grounds, toilets, washing machines, a restaurant, a small shop and an interesting visitor centre. Skaftafell boasts a rare and comfortable climate, a huge amount of plants and wildlife and heaps of amazing views.
