The Iceland Glaciological Society was founded in 1950 to support research of and travels on the glaciers of the country. Scientists and laymen work together toward this goal and anyone can apply for membership.
The society publishes a magazine, Jokull, manages research expeditions and excursions, and offers its members educational lectures.
The society owns and operates seven huts on and near the glaciers of the country. Its headquarters in the interior are the Grimsfjall hut on glacier Vatnajokull and in Jokulheimar near the edge of glacier tongue Tungnaarjokull.
