No volcanic eruption had occurred for over 800 years on the Reykjanes Peninsula in Iceland until 19 March this year, when a fissure
vent appeared in Geldingadlur to the south of Fagradlsfjall mountain. According to scientists this effusive eruption can last for months or even years. That's because the magma is coming straight from the core, about 17-20 kilometers deep (see diagram). 
Read here what exactly happened in the period leading up to the eruption. 
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we were only able to travel to Iceland in July to take photo- and video recordings. 
More updates follow soon!

Descending into a volcano is virtually impossible in practice. After an eruption, the residual liquid rock solidifies in the main vent and magma chamber, sealing off all access. Even so, there is apparently one exception... An adventure in the footsteps of Jules Vernes...
