The largest glacier in Iceland, covering 8% of the country's territory. It is located in the south-east of the island and has an area of 8,100 km². It is the largest ice cap in Europe by volume (3,100 km³) and as most of the glaciers in Iceland, it has volcanoes under the ice cap. In the glacier's cave, tourists can also admire hot springs.
