L'islande est bien connu pour ses sources d'eau chaude naturelles, ses geysers, son climat rude, et pour ses volcans. Mais peut de personnes connaissent le potentiel de cette île pour la cascade de glace. 
Les west Fjords, entre autre, nous offrent la possibilité de grimper au soleil, face à la mer. 
Autour d'Akureyri aussi, il y a beaucoup de possibilités de grands itinéraires en cascade de glace.
