On 19. March 2021 a volcanic eruption started in the Geldingadalir valley at the Fagradalsfjall mountain on the Reykjanes peninsula, South-West Iceland. The volcano is situated approximately 30 km from the country’s capital city, Reykjavík. The eruption is ongoing and the landscape in the valley and its surrounding area is constantly changing as a result.
In March to a total of six vent systems (with eight vents in total) along the main fissure of the eruption, marking one of the visibly most active phase of the eruption so far.
Having visited with Albert at night it was amazing to see the eruption in daylight.
