The unpronouncable one, silently looming in the background. Always in the shadow of its bigger sisters and brothers. Nobody knew its name, or could even pronounce it - except Icelanders. Until that day in April 2010, when it literally erupted into world fame, and stopped...More

This must be one of the most famous attractions in the country, even if by name alone. The last eruption on 2010 and the subsequent events made it noteworthy. Now, the volcano lies dormant, under ice and snow, right next to the main road and...More

The volcanic eruption waa a world event. Seeing it is interesting. Visiting the farm just below the volcano was a very interesting experience. The volcanic eruption stopped air traffic around the world. The farm survived....with a lot of work by the owners.

The Eyjafjallajökull (try and pronounce that; it sounds different that it spells) can be seen from the side of the road as well as the farms that were overrun by the flood from the melting glacier, and ash. Now it is a green idyll. But...More

This volcano is located relatively close to a main road. A helpful visitor center is present too. The volcano itself is large and impressive.

You must visit the area and admire the volcano when travelling to Iceland. This is the volcano that erupted and disrupted air travel with an ash cloud back in 2010. There were earthquakes in the area to 4.3 while we were there. The volcano is...More

The Eyjafjallajokull Volcano is the largest and most memorable one in Iceland. It is massive and beautiful. It reminds you of the great eruption of 2010 where volcanic ash was spewed into the air and disrupted air traffic throughout Europe. Locally, the residents had to...More

It was amazing to hike around the volcano that erupted in 2010. This was an experience of a lifetime. The area around the volcano is absolutely beautiful. This is an amazing experience and if you visit Iceland it's a must see.
