Lava Walk with a Local | Westman Islands
Relive the history of Westman Islands on this 2-hour walk, focused on the eruption which began without warning on the Eastern side of Heimaey on 23 January, 1973. Learn about the spectacular race against time to save the harbour, the inhabitant’s hasty departure to mainland and how the events have shaped the island’s character. Walk on new lava and enjoy breathtaking views from the top of Mount Eldfell (200m), a newly-formed volcano that erupted for about 6 months. Available from May to October.
