Fagradalsfjall volcano current status 2023.JPG

The thermal distribution in the lavas of the 2021sims is ongoing. Fagradalsfjall – as measured via satellite on 5 December 2022. The red indicates hot areas, and the blue indicates cold regions.

The areas in and around the vents from both the 2021 Geldingadalir and 2022 Meradalir eruptions are still hot, which is not a surprise as these areas are also where the lavas are thickest, ~100 m in case of the 2021 flow field and ~35 m in case of the 2022 flow field.

 

This thermal anomaly also indicates that a significant volume of liquid lava was injected into this location, which explains the re-inflation of the 2021 flow field and the re-eruption of the 2021 lava.

The show featured our signature Volcanic Reykjanes Peninsula Tour.

The show has been #2 in the most viewed TV shows on the Estonia chart.

Our guide Ragga accompanied the team, who had a blast around the lava field and visible smokey valley from the last eruption.

ABOUT THE FAGRADALSFJALL ERUPTION 

On March 19, 2021, a fissure opened in the Geldingadalir area on the Reykjanes Peninsula.

The area, part of the Reykjanes UNESCO Global Geopark, has had no volcanic eruptions for over 800 years. Still, just three weeks before the eruption, over 4.000 earthquakes were registered by the Icelandic MET office.

 

Some of the tremors were strong enough to create a certain level of hysteria for the locals living nearby Grindavík and Keflavík, while residents from the capital Reykjavík also felt many of them. 

At first, the Icelandic authorities focused on creating possible scenarios for dealing with the imminent eruption and lava flow that could affect the surrounding towns.

 

Some models showed that the main road connecting Keflavik Airport with the capital could be affected. Luckily enough, the eruption was in a perfect place; on Friday evening, at 20:45 on March 19, 2021, most people living in Grindavík witnessed the first glow from the volcanic eruption.

A few days after the eruption started, we organized the first expedition to the volcanic area, the first company in Iceland to provide private tours to Fagradalsfjall Volcano. ​

Some of our guides work with the Emergency Rescue Squad of Iceland (SAR), allowing us to offer a safe and unique experience. They are also local guides, mainly from the Grindavík area, where the volcano is located.

The new Meradalir volcano is nearby the old crater from last year.
