Iceland Volcano Eruption in 2021

A new volcanic eruption has started! Iceland is known as the land of fire and ice and it’s for good reason – volcanic eruptions are quite common on our island. The newest eruption is in the Geldingadalur valley – in Icelandic, that’s “castration” valley – on the Reykjanes peninsula between Keflavík airport and Hotel Rangá. Not to worry – compared to other volcanic eruptions in Iceland´s history, this eruption is quite small and ideally located far from towns and people.
