May 2nd. 2010.
We drove to Fljotshlid and crossed Markarfljot river which can be very tricky and dangerous unless you know the river very well. We then arrived in Husadalur in Thorsmork and headed to Gigjokull glacier where the melted glacier flooded down from the Eyjafjallajokull glacier volcano.
From Husadalur in Thorsmork it's a short drive to Gigjokull glacier (where the steam is coming from).
Crossing Krossa glacier river in a four super jeep convoy on our way to Gigjokull from Husadalur in Thorsmork.
The Gigjokull glacier lagoon has changed dramatically since the eruption. The glacier is black from ash and the lagoon has mostly disappeared and been replaced by what you see on the picture.
