Kverkfjöll Snowmobile Tour

Come with us to Kverkfjöll, a volcanic system that is still moderately active.

A snowmobile ride on Kverkfjöll is truly an experience of a lifetime and is a great adventure for, for example as a workplace trip or a for a group of friends who want to have an unforgettable journey.

The last eruption in Kverkfjöll took place on the ice-free fissure swarm about 1300 years ago, producing about a 20 km2 lava flow. The intervals between eruptions have varied from decades to thousands of years.

The 130 km long system lies on the Northern volcanic zone and consists of a central volcano rising to 1933 m a.s.l. and a fissure swarm trending NNE.
The central volcano is partly covered by up to 400 m thick ice and features two ice-filled calderas, each with a maximum diameter of 9 km.
The characteristic activity is explosive basaltic eruptions on the ice-covered part and effusive basaltic eruptions on the ice-free part of the system. The volume of tephra is generally small to moderate. The largest lava flow covers over 80 km2. Eruptions on the ice-covered part are accompanied by glacier runs.
