Vatnajokull National Park in Iceland has rugged tundra nestled against quaint greenery. Featuring one of the most famous waterfalls in the world, and plentiful opportunities to explore the fairly-like, ethereal landscape of Iceland at its finest, Vatnajokull is an awe-inspiring, frozen destination that is more than bucket-list worthy.

Another of Iceland’s special winter-only activities is to visit Vatnajökull: one of the natural ice caves that form underneath the glaciers. During the summer it’s too dangerous to get inside, but come winter these caves freeze over and stabilize just enough to host visitors. It’s a special feeling delving into one to hear the deep cracking and drips of a glacier above you.
