Vatnajökull is Europe´s largest glacier, over 8100km2. The Glacier covers more than 8% of the country and the average thickness of the ice is 400m, with a maximum thickness of 1000m. Iceland’s highest mountain, Öræfajökull (2110m) is located in the southern periphery of Vatnajökull. It is classified as an ice cap glacier.
The Vatnajökull National Park, from a natural science point of view will be unique in the world. Nowhere else is there such a combination of dynamic ice cap and outlet glaciers, frequently active sub-glacial volcanic activity and associated with massive outburst floods (Jökulhlaup) and scenic mountain grandeur.
