Breiðdalur volcano was an active volcano around 9 millon years ago. It is situated between Berufjörður and Breiðdalur valley. Ice age glaciers eroded the landscape strongly. That makes it possible to see inside the extinct volcano. Report for proposed Geopark area here (the report is partly in English)
