Eyjafjallajökull

The infamous & unpronounceable volcano

Eyjafjallajökull, or “island mountain glacier” in Icelandic, emerged as one of Iceland's most famous attractions in March 2010, when the volcano underneath the ice cap reawakened after a 200 year slumber. The volcano has erupted somewhat regularly since the last glacial period, with the last eruption occurring from 1821 to 1823.

Besides the incredible footage of the recent eruption, this volcano is perhaps best known internationally for its difficult-to-pronounce name!

The glacier itself is one of Iceland's smallest at 100 km2, but the mountain (1,666 m) can be seen from several kilometres away from Route 1 on a clear day.
