I was really never so close to a glacier. The only time I've seen a glacier before, was in Norway a few months ago, but only from the distance. This time, I could stand right next to it. It was absolutely breathtaking and incredible. This place was weirdly quiet. But every now and then, the ice cracked and big chunks of ice broke off and fell into the glacier lagoon. I will never forget this sound in my head. It is so unique, as nothing else I've ever heard in my life. Another thing I loved about Hvannadalshnúkur, is the contrast of the green mountains, the blue white glacier and the brown water. So many natural contrasts in one place.
