Icelandic volcanoes are known worldwide, mostly for their ability to bring global air traffic to a standstill!  

With around 30 active volcano systems, Iceland is home to some of the most famous volcanoes around the world. Including the notorious and hard-to-pronounce Eyjafjallajökull.

Below the surface of Thingvellir National Park is the ever-shifting Mid-Atlantic Ridge, which rests between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Thanks to this, Iceland's the only country in the world to see bubbling mud pools, unique basalt rock formations, steam vents, geysers, and lava tubes in one place. Each of Iceland's volcanoes is very different and worth visiting!
