So that you can make the most of your time in Skaftafell, it's a good idea to do a little research before you visit.

Skaftafell Vacation Packages

Reykjavik, the country's capital city, can be found 150 miles to the west of Skaftafell.

To reconnect with Mother Nature, load up your daypack and head to Jokulsarlon Lagoon, located 18 miles from Skaftafell. Another good option is Vatnajökull National Park, 12 miles away.

Make your time here that little bit more interesting by visiting Skafkatell National Park.

Not too far from Skaftafell you'll find Svinafell, 4 miles to the southeast, and Fagurholsmyri, 8 miles to the east. These destinations are also worth visiting, if you have the time.

Bjarnanes is 55 miles to the northeast of Skaftafell. This area hotspot is home to a whole lot of attractions, including Hofn Swimming Pool, Huldusteinn and Hofn Glacier Museum. Silfurnes Golf Course and Hornafjordur Art Museum are more great additions to your to-do list.

Sampling some popular food and drink is a great way to delve into a region's culture and traditions.

An excellent meal is dependent upon the quality of its ingredients. Luckily, the lamb and root vegetables are among the best in the world.

Saltfiskur (dried and salted fish) and harofiskur (jerky type fish) are two well-known meals you might like to order.

No meal can come to an end until you've had something sweet. Mondlukaka (almond cake) is sure to do the job.

If you're here for the 17th of June, you can enjoy the festive fun of Independence Day, a day of celebration across the nation.

South Iceland is a dazzling part of the world that will linger in your memories forever. This may make bidding farewell difficult, but just remember that you can always return!

Akureyri Airport is your most convenient airport at roughly 120 miles to the north, so be sure to leave yourself enough time.
