MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE VOLCANO ERUPTION IN ICELAND TOUR
After several weeks with thousands of earthquakes a new eruption started in Iceland on the 3rd August 2022. The are of Meradalir and Fagradalsfjall volcano is located on the Reykjanes Peninsula, where there are up to six volcanic systems, lined up side by side. The eruption of the volcano takes place in the Geldingadalur valley, a site that does not pose a threat to populated areas or infrastructure in Iceland thanks to the fact that it is surrounded by hills and higher ground, which prevents the lava from flowing to other areas. Streams of lava flow from the volcanic cone into the valley, slowly but surely filling it. You can see steam and gases rising from the growing lava field, as well as the newly formed crater.
The Reykjanes Peninsula is an area famous for being full of geothermal wonders. In fact, the peninsula is a UNESCO Global Geopark and is part of the global network of geoparks. The peninsula is made up of mountains of volcanic tuff that were formed in subglacial eruptions and several series of craters and volcanic systems
