ICE-land, upgraded Glacier Exhibition
The Glacier Exhibition in Höfn has been renewed.
Visitors have the opportunity to experience and learn about the area, the nature and basic glaciology. The Exhibition is divided into five accessible sections.
Room 1: Introduction and Nature Conservation
Room 2: Nature and National Parks
Room 3: Glaciology
Room 4: Experiences – e.g. walking into the equivalent of a crevasse and an icecave.
Room 5: Recidence near the Vatnajökull glacier and Reasearch Expeditions.
A film about volcanic eruptions (10 min.) is projected onto a big screen, and three other films are shown on 42” screens. Visitors can participate in the exhibition. Various media is offered, such as computer data, a range of sound effects and interactive models and measuring devices.
Centrally located in Höfn, The Exhibition rooms provide a direct view to Vatnajökull and some of its outlet glaciers. A platform on the roof is also accessible for a panoramic view of the surroundings.
Designed by Björn G. Björnsson, The Glacier Exhibition in Höfn is an ambitious project, aimed to meet the demand for cultural tourism.
