      ... been horrific to live through, but at the same time it must've been an awesome spectacle. Hundreds of people thought the same thing, with many climbing the volcano for a closer look. As it was erupting. The ride home turned out to be the most adventurous part of the day. Far from having cleared, the mountain conditions had turned into a blizzard. Gale-force winds combined with snow to make for some pretty tough going. We passed a bus, truck and two cars which had run off the ...

      ... 243;n is the best known and the largest the glacial lakes in Iceland. It is at the southern end of the Vatnajökull glacier and is 18 km². The deepest part reaches over 200m deep. It was so amazing. So pretty. I've never seen anything like it!! Clear blue water with floating lumps of ice - white, black and blue. So many colours. Hundreds of seagulls. And even seals playing around in the 2 degree water. The black glacier ice is from volcanic ash. The blue ice is from ...

      ... was completed to coincide with the 1100th anniversary of the founding of Iceland.

      But first, we are going INSIDE A VOLCANO. Iceland is home to the only known stable, empty magma chamber inside a quiet volcano. While most eruptions either result in an explosive destruction of the chamber (like Mt. St. Helens) or a more "gentle" collapse into a crater (like Diamond Head), for some reason, the chamber of Thrihnukagigur remained open and ...
