A man at Fagradalsfjall volcanic eruptio

A volcanic eruption has started in Reykjanes Peninsula after more than 50,000 earthquakes registered since the beginning of 2021. The eruption site is located in a valley called Geldingadalur, besides Mt. Fagradalsfjall.

The eruption was registered north-east of the coastal town of Grindavík, a town just 25,4 km (157 miles) from Keflavik International Airport. It’s been 800 years since the last eruption on the Reykjanes Peninsula. The magma flows from a depth of 17-20 km (10-12 mi) and is of a more primitive sort than we´ve seen before. This type of eruption hardly occurred since the end of the Ice Age.


This is a great opportunity for lava lovers to explore the eruption from below and above.
