Until SpaceX can work out a few small kinks in their ambitious plan to offer space travel, like building non-exploding rockets, walking on a new planet will have to remain with the imagination. However, after visiting Svinafellsjokull glacier in Iceland, it’s a little easier for me to imagine what it would be like to gracefully walk on a foreign planet.
The glacier was one of my favorite locations while traveling through Iceland so make sure to make a stop if you visit the country. Below is a short video during my visit to the glacier followed by a few photos. If you want to watch a big budget film instead, check out Interstellar since the producers used Svinafellsjokull Glacier as one of the film’s locations. You can read about my experience in Iceland if you plan on visiting the country and want a few recommendations.
