정보: Lakagígar

Lakagígar, in the south of the Icelandic highlands, is a row of craters, formed during one of the largest eruptions in recorded history, known as the fires of the River Skafta, or ‘Skaftareldar’ in Icelandic. The area has some of the most stunningly attractive landscapes in Iceland.

The majority of the craters are today covered in moss.The total area of the lava field is 565 km² and the estimated volume of volcanic material is over 12 km². The Skaftáreldar eruption that formed the craters in the 18th century led to crop failure, disease and disasters in Iceland. Some believe that the airborne haze from the eruption, blocking the sunlight in the northern hemisphere, may have contributed to the French revolution in 1789.
