  • Is Iceland safe to visit after the most recent volcano eruptions?

    When volcanic activity first kicked off on the Reykjanes peninsula a few years ago, it came as a bit of a surprise. After all, the area hadn’t experienced an eruption for something like eight centuries. Over the past three years, volcanic activity has increased and subsided several times. The most recent phase began in late 2023 and has been ongoing on and off ever since. These eruptions have had a significant impact on the town of Grindavik in the south of the Reykjanes peninsula and also periodically, to the Blue Lagoon in the middle. So what effect, if any, will this have on your travel plans?
