Eruption in Eyjafjallajokull – Iceland Excursions.avi

Proven once again, Iceland is truly the land of fire and ice. The people of Iceland are used to the forces of nature, since there have been constant reports of volcanic activities throughout the history of our beautiful island. For the second time this year a volcanic eruption has started, now in the glacier with the name that no one can say Eyjafjallajökull. To see a volcanic eruption is something most people dont have a chance to many times in their lives (except if you are an Icelander!). Joins us on a tour for a unique experience. Our super trucks take you along the south shore to Hvolsvöllur. From there we turn off the main road and head to Fljótshlíð, where we stop to view the volcanic activity at a safe distance away from the eruption. Our guides give you a good overview of the geology of the area and about volcanic eruptions. We will be travelling on gravel roads for the last part of this tour, making it necessary to have our 4wd super trucks to take you safely to our view point. Please note that some parts of the area surrounding the volcano are closed but we will ONLY go where it is allowed to be, ensuring our passengers safety. We reserve the right to cancel or alter the itinerary of this tour depending on weather and road conditions. New departures will be added as long as the eruption continues but we reserve the right to discontinue the tour when the eruption stops.

“Reykjavik City Tour” Wareameye’s photos around Reykjavík, Iceland

A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Reykjavík, Iceland by TravelPod blogger Wareameye titled “Reykjavik City Tour”. TravelPod is a company of TripAdvisor™. Wareameye’s travel blog entry: “Tuesday, August 5, 2008 Reykjavik City Tour Dear Readers: The rest of the group arrives on time this morning, with no luggage hassles, and make it to the hotel by 8am for breakfast before our city tour. We have a woman guide who was born and raised here in Reykjavik, and takes us to the most interesting parts of the city. One of our first stops is close to the hotel. It is the home/studio of one of Iceland’s most famous sculptors, Asmundur Sveinsson, who lived from 1893 – 1982. An unusual structure, it is surrounded by many of his works which were inspired by Iceland’s fantastic sagas and folklore. Down by the waterfront, we grab a group photo by the Viking ship sculpture several of us visited at sunset last night. Another stop is at the house where Presidents Reagan and Gorbachev met in 1986. That meeting is regarded by historians as the beginning of the end of the Cold War. The iconic symbol of Reykjavik, the Lutheran Church with the tall spire, is undergoing renovation, but we go to the top for good views over the city. Even better views are available from the “Pearl,” which is a domed restaurant sitting on top of the city’s huge tanks of water heated by geothermal activity. Our brief orientation tour also includes visits to the harbor to see the whaling ships which

Iceland Luxury Tours – Golden Circle Snowmobile Tour

We headed off at 9:00 AM and the weather was superb, the sun was coming up and no clouds visible. After visiting Thingvellir national park and the Geysir geothermal area we headed to Langjokull glacier where the snowmobiles waited purring in the crisp white snow reflected the sunlight. This video clip was shot on the way back down from Langjokull and you can see the Gullfoss area straight ahead right below the snowline. When we got back to Gullfoss we had the classic lamb meat soup at Gullfoss Café which was delicious as usual and then headed back to Reykjavik with a short stop at Kerid crater lake in Grimsnes.
