"Close your eyes and imagine Iceland. What did you see? Grassy knolls? Snowcapped peaks? Slow-moving glaciers? Steaming volcanoes? All of this and more can be found about four hours east of Reykjavik in Vatnajökull and Skaftafell National Park. Combined, the neighboring reserves cover 40 percent of the island nation and form Europe's largest park. This serene amphitheater of glistening blue ice and mossy mounds boasts a network of popular trails that take visitors through misty fields past thundering waterfalls and twisted birch woods."
