Glacier Hofsjokull East (1069m) is located east of Glacier Vatnajokull, between Valley Vididalur in the Lon Area and Valley Hofsdalur of the Alftafjordur Area. It counts among the smaller glaciers of the country with an area of about 13 square kilometres. Its highest point is furthest north and small glacier snouts creep down the mountain’s southern slopes in the direction of Valley Vididalur.
The old route between Valley Vididalur and the farms of Valley Hofsdalur meandered between the Mts Tungutindar and the main glacier. River Hofsa discharges the glacier.
