Falljokull (Falljökull) glacier is an outlet glacier from the Vatnajokull icecap. The name directly translates to ‘Falling Glacier’.

Hiking on Falljokull means experiencing a dramatically carved landscape, impressive and ever changing ice formations and getting a fantastic view of the surrounding mountains and crevasses. The massive icefall, from which Falljokull derives its name, ice crashing down the mountain towards the ocean, is a truly awe-inspiring sight that should not be missed.

A small brook, Fallsjokulskvisl falls from the glacier and close to it are two canyons, Graenafjallsgljufur and Storalaekjargljufur, also well worth checking out.
