Icelandic lava

A new Icelandic lava display site has opened in the capital’s Grande port district, simulating a volcanic eruption in which lava heats up to more than 1,000 degrees Celsius.

Safety goggles

To add more magic to the show, what happens when lava spills on snow can also be seen, and of course visitors are given safety glasses when watching this scene up close.

The show is a satisfying destination for many Icelandic tourists who see the world-famous volcanoes and massive craters formed by volcanic eruptions but have never experienced the sight of molten rock.

This is the second site of its kind after a similar lava display in the more remote town of Vík in southern Iceland, an area known for its dormant volcanic mountains and places to walk alongside natural attractions.

About Iceland

The Republic of Iceland is a European island country in the North Atlantic Ocean on the mid-Atlantic edge, with a population of 320,000 people and a total area of ​​103,000 km2. Its capital is Reykjavik and it is the largest city in the country, as it and the southwestern regions are home to more than two-thirds of the country’s population.

Iceland is a volcanically and geologically active country, and the country’s mainland consists of a plateau characterized by sand fields, mountains and glaciers, while many glaciers flow into the seas through the lowlands. The Gulf Stream softens the climate of Iceland, making it moderate and suitable for life, despite its location on the borders of the Arctic Circle.

Iceland is also a geologically young land and is located on the hot zone of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge that passes directly through it. This combination means that the island is geologically active with the presence of many volcanoes such as Hekla, Edgia, Herdobrid and Ildville.
Volcanic eruptions occur on the island, on average, once every five years. The eruption of the Laki volcano in 1783-1784 led to a famine that killed a quarter of the population of Iceland. The eruption produced clouds of volcanic ash that blanketed most of Europe and parts of Africa and Asia for the next several months.

Dettifoss waterfall in northeastern Iceland. It is the largest waterfall in Europe in terms of flow volume, with a water flow rate of about 200 m3/sec.

Iceland also includes a number of geysers, the most famous of which is the Geysir geyser. There is also the famous Stroker geyser, which erupts once every 5-10 minutes. After a period of stagnation, the Geyser geyser erupted again after the series of earthquakes in 2000.
