A huge iceberg is now roaming outside the island of Hrísey in the north of Iceland.

It is believed to rise 20 meters above sea level. A number of smaller icebergs are floating around the big one and can be dangerous to boats and ships.

It is believed that only 1/10 of the iceberg is above water, which means that it could be as high as 200 meters.

Unusually, many icebergs have been registered in the west and north of Iceland this summer and fall. They originate from the glaciers in northeast-Greenland.
