Tungnafellsjokull is located just northwest of the huge Vatnajokull icefield in central Iceland. Like many of the Icelandic volcanoes, its summit icecap conceals a large caldera. A second ice-free caldera is found at much lower elevation to the southeast. The standard skiing and climbing routes ascend the gentler east slopes of the complex from the area between Tungnafellsjokull and Vatnajokull.




More photos and info about routes, access, etc. may be added in the future ...
