Vatnajökull Glacier sits in southeast Iceland, covering a significant portion of the island nation's landmass. The largest glacier in Europe offers stunning ice caves in the winter and ice climbing year round. 
Winter provides the most challenging ice climbing, as the rock-solid ice resits the climbing picks of all but the most determined. As the ice softens in the summer, new climbers will find the most welcoming conditions. 
Hikers will love the scenic and challenging paths through Vatnajökull National park. 

The ice changes each year, so you may not precisely recognize the locations that are often used for film and television, but if you visit, you can enjoy the scenery that you may have previously seen on a screen. 

If you visit, AVER recommends that you fly into Keflavik International Airport and drive or take a bus to the national park.
