The name is little difficult to pronounce, but Eyjafjallajokull is not to be missed by any travel enthusiast. It offers some thrilling fun to the adventure lovers. It is a smaller ice cap, located on the south coast of Iceland. This area consists of a volcano, which is covered by an ice cap that covers the area of approximately 100 square kilometers. This volcano erupted in 2010 and caused a great havoc. However, it has now become a popular tourist attraction. As Eyjafjallajokull boasts of numerous glacier outlets, it has become a prominent spot for tourists to visit and explore its astonishing and picturesque beauty.
