GELDINGADALUR ERUPTS!

We have been expecting it, and it finally happened: a new eruption has started in Iceland – and it might go on for some time.
Just kilometres away from Reykjavík, Geldingadalur is ejecting ancient magma from a freshly created fissure, and might soon turn into a new volcano. Find more here.
