from site: The Fjallabak Nature Reserve is somewhat hidden behind the usual tourist trail of the Ring Road as it passes southern Iceland. Yet this is a wonderful place to visit, and only a short distance from the beaten track.

Fjallabak Nature Reserve - at LonelyPlanet.com
from site: The Fjallabak Route (F208) is a spectacular alternative to the coast road between Hella and Kirkjubæjarklaustur. It passes through the scenic nature reserve to Landmannalaugar, an area of rainbow-coloured rhyolite peaks, rambling lava flows, blue lakes and hot springs which can hold you captive for days. Much of the route is along (and in!) rivers and therefore unsuitable for 2WD vehicles.

Glaciers - wikipedia
from site: A glacier is a large persistent body of ice. Originating on land, a glacier flows slowly due to stresses induced by its weight. The crevasses and other distinguishing features of a glacier are due to its flow. Another consequence of glacier flow is the transport of rock and debris abraded from its substrate and resultant landforms like cirques and moraines.

from site: At present there are no reliable figures on the total number or area of glaciers in Canada. The National Hydrology Research Institute, Environment Canada, is in the process of identifying and measuring all glaciers. The table shows the best available estimates for areas by region, and the number of glaciers for those areas surveyed to date.
