New UNESCO World Heritage Site – Vatnajökull National Park – is explored by Hidden Iceland (volcanoes, ice caves, glaciers and black sand beaches)

No two years are the same in the UNESCO protected Vatnajökull National Park

Hidden Iceland pride themselves in taking their small groups to some of the less explored areas of Iceland, while still seeing the must see sights along the way. Discovering new crystal clear blue ice caves behind the famous Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon is the perfect example of this. The fact that it is now a UNESCO protected area makes it all the more special.

Hidden Iceland run two day trips to this area in the South East of the island. In the summer you can bask in the midnight sun as it slips behind the tallest mountain in the country, Hvannadalshnjúkur. Or in the winter hunt for the northern lights over the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon. Glacier hiking happens all year round. In summer you’re more likely to see a distant avalanche or cracking iceberg. But in the winter the ice is far bluer and filled with safe to enter ice caves.

UNESCO World Heritage Site

The UNESCO World Heritage Site, Vatnajökull National Park, is one of the most unique and unexplored areas of the country. This newly branded national park is the biggest national park in Europe and boasts 10 volcanoes and an ice cap (glacier) 10 times the size of New York City. The relationship between the fire and ice (volcanoes and glaciers) is truly unique. Most of the volcanoes in the national park are glacier capped. In some cases an entire ice cap sits atop rumbling volcanic craters.
