A 400 km security perimeter around the crater has been set up in the Geldingadalir valley, where more and more curious people are venturing out.

It can be extended to 650 m depending on the wind.

“The noises are an absolutely intense experience.

The colors, the noises, the heat: all combined, it's incredible, ”testifies Benjamin Berglez, a tourist from Germany.

“It's not every day that you can admire a volcano so closely.

It's really amazing and so beautiful ”, abounds Freyja Wappler-Friðriksdóttir, a spectator.

It has been over eight centuries since a lava eruption occurred on the Reykjanes Peninsula.
