Whenever there is a volcanic eruption in Iceland, Discover the World runs special trips. Eruptions are usually quite rare - only every few years (see our Volcano & Geology guide on the above link). These trips are organised on very short notice and we’ve managed to get people out to Iceland and viewing the activities at close hand, within 24-48hrs of the eruption beginning.

So far 2010 has seen significant activity from the Eyjafjallajokull volcano on this little island in the North Atlantic, with two eruptions in April-May. Alternatively, if you'd like to see lava fields, craters, geysirs and bubbling hot springs, thanks to Iceland's position at the convergence of the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates, you can witness the power of the planet for yourself.

At least 30 Icelandic volcanic systems have been active in the last 1,100 years, accounting for over 160 eruptions. In the last 12 years, there have been eruptions under the Vatnajokull icecap and on Hekla. Nearly every kind of volcanic activity is found on the island, though fissure eruptions are most common. We run special trips to view eruptions and if you’d like to find out when they are operating, email your day and evening contact details to volcanohotline@discover-the-world.co.uk as we could be in touch at very short notice!
