The broad Hofsjökull volcano lies beneath the western part of the massive Hofsjökull icecap. A caldera 7-8 km wide is beneath about 700 m of ice to the right of the high point in this view from the NNW. Lava flows are found to the south, east, and north of this central volcano. The rugged ice-covered peak at top right is the Kerlingarfjöll edifice.
