Local advice: If you are staying in the area overnight, we recommend booking a hotel room at Hotel Skaftafell, their restaurant is also a great pit-stop to have lunch or dinner before driving to your next destination. The local gas station Freysnes offers some more budget-friendly options for a quick lunch or dinner (their Lamb-burger is awesome!). And if you are looking for some other local activities both Troll Expedition and Melrakki offer some great glacier hikes, giving you the opportunity to see the glacier up close and personal after flying over it.
