Oraefajokull glacier in South Iceland

Oraefajokull is a glacier volcano in Southeast Iceland. On its Northwestern side is Iceland's highest peak, Hvannadalshnjukur (2109 m).

Explore this area while on a self drive tour in Iceland.

Oraefajokull, which has several glacier tounges of its own, is considered a part of the larger Vatnajokull and thus belongs to Vatnajokull National Park. It has erupted twice, in 1362 and 1727.
