Falljokull ('Falling Glacier') is an outlet glacier from the Vatnajokull icecap. 

Explore this region on a self drive tour in Iceland.

Hiking on Falljokull means experiencing a dramatically carved landscape, impressive and ever-changing ice formations, and getting a fantastic view of the surrounding mountains and crevasses. The massive icefall, from which Falljokull derives its name, ice crashing down the mountain towards the ocean, is a truly awe-inspiring sight that should not be missed. A small brook, Fallsjokulskvisl falls from the glacier, and close to it are two canyons, Graenafjallsgljufur and Storalekjargljufur, also well worth checking out.
