Book today to see Iceland’s erupting volcano

7th April 2010 Print

Iceland’s reputation as the land of fire and ice has rarely been on such grand display than the past several days. Since 21st March, the Fimmvorduhals volcano near the Eyjafjallajokul glacier has been erupting, putting on a magnificent light display. 

Travellers from the UK can experience it firsthand with the Icelandair Holidays Volcano City Break from £479.

This package includes flights from London Heathrow, Manchester or Glasgow, three nights four-star accommodation in Reykjavik and trip to the erupting volcano.

Iceland is one of the most geologically active areas in the world since it is situated on the convergence of two tectonic plates.  As a result, it is a land full of volcanoes, lava fields and hot springs, not to mention glaciers and black sand beaches.

The Fimmvorduhals volcano is located in a fairly remote region between two glaciers on the south coast of Iceland and in the area of one of Iceland’s most scenic walking trails.  The trip to the volcano from Reykjavik departs in the evening, when the eruption is most visible, and takes approximately two hours.  Passengers will spend several hours at the volcano before returning to Reykjavik.  Each tour will be different based on the state of the eruption, with the safety of passengers the top priority.

In addition to seeing the eruption, visitors can take advantage of the best exchange rate in decades and enjoy Iceland’s gourmet dining, chic boutique shopping and cool spa culture.

The offer is good for travel through 9th April.   The package must be booked online at by 7th April and is subject to both flight and hotel availability.  Icelandair is one of Iceland’s longest established companies, connecting the world and Iceland for over 70 years.
