Vatnajökull Glacier


Take in these stunning aerial views of Iceland's largest ice cap, compliments of top AirVuz contributor FreD.  The Vatnajökull Glacier covers a large portion of southeastern Iceland, accounting for about a twelfth of the island's overall land area.  Depending on definition, it's either the largest or second-largest ice cap in Europe.  Its average thickness is almost a quarter mile (1.25k ft. or about 380 m) and overlies numerous volcanoes.  It appeared in the opening sequence of the 1985 James Bond film, View to a Kill.
