Þórisjökull Glacier

Þórisjökull Glacier

This small glacier volcano is situated in the Highlands between Iceland’s second biggest glacier, Langjökull and the shield volcano. The name translates to Þori’s glacier, Þori being a troll who is said to have lived in a cave nearby, and jökull of course meaning glacier. Þorisjökull is 1350 metres high, and is a tuya volcano from the Ice Age. Tuya volcanoes are characterized by their flat tops, that result from a volcano erupting underneath a thick glacier.
