The glacier Vatnajokull reigns supreme, showing no regard for
politics in Iceland or the rest of the world. In its Realm the ice
is omnipotent, with powerful arms that have cut out valleys and
peaks, and rushing rivers that have challenged surrounding
settlements for centuries -- not to mention the subglacial
volcanoes, long a source of destruction and change throughout the
area. The endless struggle with the forces of nature has
continually shaped regional culture and history. Extending around
the icecap, Skaftafell National Park encloses the unique phenomenon
of Vatnajokull, in addition to many of Iceland's leading natural
wonders, such as the park's traditional core at Skaftafell,
Ingólfshöfði headland, Jökulsárlón lagoon and Öræfajokull,
Iceland's highest mountain. The regional town of Höfn, home to the
interesting Glacier Exhibition and other services, enjoys one of
the island's most fabulous panoramas.
