We didn’t hike this but we did snow mobile on this volcano with a super Jeep taking us all the way up. It was a surreal experience, considering it was a rain/snow storm with winds at 70mph.

I climbed to the summit of Mt. Eyjafjallajökull with a team of charity trekkers in the winter of 2014 and what an experience it was! Using Iclandic Mountain Guides we were safely guided to the summit over an incredible day, with views of the grassy...More

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.

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
