As volcanoes are very unpredictable and can erupt without any warning and powerful eruptions can stop in a few hours, there is no way of knowing what the volcanic situation in Iceland will be when you read this. One thing is for sure is that in 2010 no trip to Iceland will be complete without exploring the sites of the eruptions which were heard around the world. The perfect base for any such expeditions is Hótel Rangá, which is located close enough to the sites for it to be convenient and far away enough for it to be safe.
From Hótel Rangá several volcano exploring options can be arranged for; including helicopter rides, guided jeep tours and many more. Experiencing nature’s power and beauty through a volcano is a lifetime experience. But whatever you do, do not try to visit the volcano by yourself without consulting with experts.
