Background:

The Ljósufjöll volcanic system at the eastern end of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula is a group of basaltic cinder cones and lava flows along short fissures on a roughly 90-km-long WNW-ESE line.

The volcanic field is about 20-km wide at the eastern end and narrows to about 10-km width on the west. Young-looking cinder cones and lava flows with morphologically fresh surfaces testify to numerous eruptions during the past 10,000 years. The latest eruption post-dated the settlement of Iceland, and took place about 1000 years ago.
