The Eyjafjallajökull glacier is a 1666m high glacier-capped stratovolcano. It is one of the smaller glaciers of Iceland. It is situated to the north of Skógar and to the south and west of the bigger glacier Mýrdalsjökull. The icecap of the glacier covers a volcano (1666m in height) which has erupted relatively frequently since the Ice Age, most recently in 2010. The 2010 eruption caused the largest disruption in airline flights in Europe as the ash blew towards the continent.
