The subglacial Esjufjöll volcano at the SE part of the Vatnajökull icecap, north of Öræfajökull volcano, may contain a central caldera. A minor eruption in 1927 that produced a large jökulhlaup is the only known historical activity from Esjufjöll.


Esjufjöll volcano, like Öraefajökull, is hidden beneath the immense glacier of Vatnajökull at its SE end, north of Öræfajökull volcano. It is actually not known wether it also has a central caldera. A small eruption in 1927, however, caused a relatively large jökulhlaup (glacier meltwater outburst), which is the only known historical eruption from Esjufjöll.
