ICELAND: A Drive Through the Southwest

Recorded September 6, 2008. The Republic of Iceland is an island country located in the North Atlantic Ocean. It has a population of about 320000 and a total area of 103000 kilometers. Located on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, Iceland is volcanically and geologically active on a large scale; this defines the landscape. The interior mainly consists of a plateau characterized by sand fields, mountains and glaciers, while many big glacial rivers flow to the sea through the lowlands. Warmed by the Gulf Stream, Iceland has a temperate climate relative to its latitude and provides a habitable environment and nature. Unlike neighbouring Greenland, Iceland is considered to be a part of Europe, not of North America, though geologically the island is not part of either of the continental plates.

Volcano in Iceland. Drive to the eruption

We drove up Myrdalsjokull glacier, on the south coast of Iceland, to the volcano at Fimmvorduhals. A spectacular display of the raw power of nature. For this trip we used well equipped 500 horsepower Dodge Ram diesel boasting 49″ tires among other goodies. The music is by Pete Tosh, Ka Da TA Eftirmiðdaginn 29. mars 2010 ókum við upp Sólheimajökul og svo til vesturs að Fimmvörðuhálsi. Náðum gosinu í ljósaskiptunum. Hraunáin niður í Hrunagil er stórkostleg og á einni klukkustund gjörbreyttist hún í nokkurs konar flúðir. Ferðin var farin á Dodge Ram 2500, vel útbúnum til jöklaferða (sem er meira en hægt var að segja um marga ferðamennina á jöklinum, því miður).
