Flight to Iceland

Vatnajökull

Vatnajökull, Europe’s largest glacier, has shaped the environs and history of East Iceland for millennia. Most of the country’s rivers which have the greatest flow run from this glacier, thereupon forking through half of the island. In 2004, Europe’s largest national park was established, as the southern part of the glacier was added onto the Skaftafell park; moreover, further park expansion is being prepared. Farther north in the ice cap, Kverkfjöll combines the incredible forces of fire and glacial ice, while Vatnajökull Iceland’s most active volcano, Grímsvötn, erupts every 5-10 years. The massive glacial power appears again to the south as glacial tongues slide onto grassy plains and broad sands -- full reason for Vatnajökull to have placed its print on society through the centuries and for world-famous movies to have been filmed at the Jökulsárlón lagoon. Nonetheless, the stranger must beware of going onto the glacier, even if it is easilyaccessible at many points. It is wise to obtain information from those who are well acquainted with conditions, and both south and north of Vatnajökull there are trips and other services for glacier travellers.
