The surroundings of the glacier is quite spectacular because of the great terminal moraine hills around there. The front of the terminal moraines shows how big the glacier was in the beginning of the last century. The terminal moraine on the east side of the river Kvíá is called Kambmýrarkambur, around 129 m high and on the west side of the river is the Kvíármýrarkambur around 150 m. The landscape is spectacular and a very good place to have a short stop.
