Glaciers of Northern Europe
The best locations for glacier visits in Northern Europe
The best locations for glacier tourism in Northern Europe are:
- Norway. Central- and Northern Norway have many glaciers, with Jostedalsbreen with its many glacier tongues being the largest.
- Iceland. The South coast and interior of Iceland have beautiful glaciers including the mighty Vatnajökull with its gorgeous glacial lakes Jokulsárlón and Fjallsárlón.
- Greenland. Greenland’s ice cap is the second largest ice body in the world, after the Antarctic ice sheet.
- Svalbard. 60% of the land of the islands of Svalbard is covered by ice. Note that most glaciers are only accessible by boat (or by snow scooter in winter).
