12,000sq km

Skaftafell National Park was founded in 1967 by the government and the WWF. 2008 saw it join with Jokulsárgljufur National Park and together they formed the Vatnajokull National Park. The National Park is 12,000 sq km; the largest in Europe.

160,000 visitors allegedly visit Skaftafell every year but I only saw 5 other people and they were in the visitors complex.

    Visited Iceland in 2002 and had a great time. Interesting photos, good tips and a nice chance for me to remember our trip. ;)
