This track describes my trip to the volcanic eruption in Fimmvörðuháls in the spring of 2010. Please do not assume that following the track is safe - glaciers change from day to day. The eruption also changes (this is written just after a new fissure opened) so again the utmost care must be taken.
This is an ideal place to observe the eruption in the original crater.
I am told that you can see the new fissure from this location - we were chased out of the area before I could verify that :-)
A great spot for watching lava falls cascading into the Hrunárgil gully.
