Vatnajökull National Park is awarded Runner up by Tripadvisor

Our very own Vatnajökull National Park is the runner up on Tripadvisor Best of the Best – Travelers Choice 2021 list in Europe.

Vatnajökull is the largest ice cap in Iceland and the largest glacier in Europe; it covers 8 percent of Iceland's surface. Six volcanoes lie underneath it, including Bárðarbunga, which caused the Holuhraun eruption in 2014-15.

Vatnajökull is also the name of Icelandair´s Boeing 757-200 aircraft or the First Flying Glacier. In celebration of its 80th anniversary Icelandair introduced the glacially themed livery. It took 4 airbrush artists and 21 assistants to paint the 590 square meter canvas with 2500 work hours, 195 liters of paint and 12 pantone colors!
