It was established in 2008 and covers an area of around 14000 square kilometers which is about 14% of the surface of Iceland. The glacier covers about half of the Park, offering a unique interplay between fire and ice, volcanic activity, glacial and geological formations and waterfalls. The Park contains many areas of historical interest and an extraordinary variety of landscapes which contain some of the nation´s greatest natural treasures. It occupies a very important place in the world of natural science, due to, among other things, the dynamic interaction between fire and ice, which is still very much at work today.  In 2019, Vatnajökull National Park was inscribed upon the UNESCO World Heritage List.  For opening hours, please visit:
