Views of Sólheimajökull Glacier Before it Melts Away

Very near Reynisfjara Black Sand Beach, you’ll find Sólheimajökull, a beautiful ice blue glacier covered in black ash. It lies in the space between two volcanoes, Katla and Eyjafjallajökull. The blanket of ash is thanks to previous eruptions from those two rowdy neighbors. Sólheimajökull is the 4th largest ice cap in all of Iceland.Solheimajokull, Iceland / for the love of nike / Jennifer Martinez ConwaySolheimajokull, Iceland / for the love of nike / Jennifer Martinez ConwaySolheimajokull, Iceland / for the love of nike / Jennifer Martinez ConwaySolheimajokull, Iceland / for the love of nike / Jennifer Martinez ConwaySolheimajokull, Iceland / for the love of nike / Jennifer Martinez ConwayThis stunning hunk of ice is over 5 miles long and 1 mile wide. Solheimajokull, Iceland / for the love of nike / Jennifer Martinez ConwaySolheimajokull, Iceland / for the love of nike / Jennifer Martinez ConwaySolheimajokull, Iceland / for the love of nike / Jennifer Martinez ConwaySolheimajokull, Iceland / for the love of nike / Jennifer Martinez Conway

Many fear it will be gone within decades.

    • I feel the same way about travel. It’s easy to feel like you’re in a mad dash to see everything humanly possible when you’re in a new or hard to get to place. I’m glad you were able to visit Iceland! What a beautiful place.
