An ongoing volcano eruption on Eyjafjalla Glacier (Eyjafjallajokull) in Iceland. The volcanic eruption started on 21 March 2010 beneath the glacier, located on the southern tip of Iceland. Partially clear skies on 24 March enabled Meteosat-9 to catch a glimpse of the hot spot (the short line of very dark pixels). credit: EUMETSAT source: www.eumetsat.int Video Rating: 2 / 5
Kim Broux og Jochem Cuypers crossed Iceland from north to south in february 2008. It was a beautyfull trip, but very heavy because of the bad weather (8 days really bad). They used 11 days to complete the trip – for more info and photos look at their website www.wereldvanavontuur.be Video Rating: 0 / 5
Coming from Askja, going west over the F910, you will first meet a sandy desert. Following is an area in which Vatnajokull melting water water could be flushing the route completely, when you’re out of this you come into the area with blocks of a moraine of the Vatnajokull glacier. These blocks are just big enough to make you drive slowly, no need for speed-camera’s here. When the camera turns right you will get a view on the flushed plains, where sandstorms reign. We had pretty cold and dry weather, therefore the plains are very dry and dusty. Driving over these blocks does not make you want to go fast. Video Rating: 0 / 5
When you’re lucky like we are, and the weather is cold and dry, there is not too much water at the plains southwest of Askja, F910. Just easy driving, nearly straight ahead. Note, this is a meltwater-plain from Vatnajokull. Keep a bit of speed (to avoid small patches of quicksand to have any grip on you) but not too much (to keep it from being bumpy). Video Rating: 0 / 5
Travelling back to Reykjavic between Vik and Skogar and saw some really cool rock formations. The funny thing is, the weather that hangs in this area is completely different from the sunshine everywhere else. Blame the mountains, man.
