Every now and then, Iceland's volcanoes see to it that the county's reputation as the "Land of Fire & Ice" remains closer to being a matter-of-fact than a mere cliché. Last Saturday, around midnight, the skies of South-East Iceland were lit up by a blood-red shimmer from the lava spurting out of a rift that had suddenly opened up in the ice capped ground next to the Eyjafjallajökull glacier.
The lava explosions are said to reach up to 150 meters into the air and the volcanic ash is said to stretch as far as 4-8 kilometres into the sky. Geologists have speculated whether this eruption might prognosticate an eruption of the nearby volcano Katla, which would probably be even more powerful. In any case, the eruption next to Eyjafjallajökull is predicted to continue for a longer period of time. The volcanic eruption is an amazing spectacle that can be observed from a safe distance. At the moment the best conditions for catching a glimpse of the phenomenon are in the area of Fljótshlið. Reacting to this unravelling of nature, Nordic Visitor offers customized trips to the area around Eyjafjallajökull for those interested in seeing the fire and ice with their own eyes.
Nordic Visitor offers special volcano tours including accommodation in Reykjavik, sightseeing flights over the area, guided bus tours and/or super-jeep tours near to the area.
