Langjökull is with its 950 square kilometers (after the mighty Vatnajökull) the second largest glacier cap in Iceland.

If you are courageous enough and have a sturdy car, you can try to drive onto the glacier, there is almost a highway.

An interesting thing is that the water in the Þingvallavatn lake origins right from the Langjökull glacier and the melted water reaches the lake under the ground.
