Day 4 Vestmannaeyjar island - the pompei of the North

The Westman Islands or Vestmannaeyjar are without a doubt among the most beautiful places in Iceland, they consist of a group of fifteen amazing islands which are situated at a short distance off the south coast of Iceland.

We will visit Eldfell, which is a composite volcanic cone just over 200 metres high. It was formed in a huge volcanic eruption - the name means Mountain of Fire in Icelandic. This volcanic eruption is considered the largest natural disaster in Iceland in recent history. The eruption caused the destruction of a third of the town, and the massive changes to the landscape of this tiny island made world news. Now, more than 30 years have passed, and the memories and signs of the spectacular eruption are fading, but lava and ash still cover almost 400 homes and buildings.
