TijdMag. / DiepteAfstandLocatie
A large ice-covered volcano at the western tip of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula in western Iceland. Its last eruption dates about 1750 years back.

Background:

Numerous pyroclastic cones dot the flanks of the 1448-m-high stratovolcano, the only large central volcano in this part of Iceland. Lower-flank craters produced basaltic lava flows and upper-flank craters intermediate-to-silicic material. Holocene lava flows extend to the sea over the entire western half of the volcano. Several Holocene silicic eruptions have originated from the summit crater. The latest dated eruption took place about 1750 years ago; several lava flows may be even younger.
