Þórsmörk trip: Gígjökull (Eyjafjallajökull) up close

The glacier looks small from a distance of a few hundred meters, where you can only see the tongue itself and not the ice cap.

 A closer look reveals that it is quite large – see the people up by the caves for scale.

It’s still fairly small compared with, e.g. Skaftafellsjökull.
