GRÍMSVÖTN

The sub-glacial lakes Grímsvötn and the volcano Grímsvötn are in the highlands of Iceland at the northwestern side of Vatnajökull glacier. Grímsvötn is a basaltic volcano and is the most active volcano in Iceland and has erupted at least 60 times during the past 800 years. Because most of the volcano lies underneath Vatnajökull, most of its eruptions have been subglacial. It last erupted in 2011 with 12 km (7 mi) high plumes accompanied by multiple earthquakes, that resulted in cancellation of hundreds of flights. This is one of Iceland tours best option to view this magnificent place.

SPRENGISANDUR

Sprengisandur is a highland gravel road between Hofsjökull glacier and Vatnajökull glacier. It is the longest of the Icelandic highlands roads and is only used during summer, like all other roads crossing the inner desert. When the weather is good, the route offers stunning views of both glaciers and the volcanoes Askja and Herðubreið.
