Eyjabakkajökull is a northeastern glacial tongue of the great Vatnajökull glacier, the largest ice cap in Iceland.
Explore this area of Iceland on a self drive tour.
Eyjabakkajökull stretches down the Devil’s Pass to the mud flats of Eyjabakkar, where you can find many tributaries of the great river, Jökulsá á Fjöllum. This is a key breeding area for pink-footed geese.
Eyjabakkajökull stands beside Mt. Snæfell, Iceland’s tallest freestanding mountain.
