Gígjökull, a small outlet glacier from Eyjafjallajökull, southern Iceland. Mt. Eyjafjallajökull is an active stratovolcanoe, and one of the largest volcanoes in Iceland
At the top of the volcano there is a small caldera, 2-2.5 km in diameter. There is a break in the caldera rim to the north through which the outlet glacier Gígjökull drains
Here you see the steep snout of Gígjökull, the valley glacier which is melting to produce this cold natural barrier you have to cross. In front of Gígjökull you see the 40m-deep glacial lake of Jökullón which is decorated with numerous icebergs frozen in the water.
