    Day 3 The island of the Volcanos

    In Vestmannaeyjar there is a fresh volcano called Eldfell. It errupted in 1973 forcing the evacuation of the inhabitants for the five months that the eruption continued. At the time, there was uncertainty whether the island could ever be repopulated. The eruption caused the destruction of a third of the town, and the massive changes to the landscape of this tiny island made world news. Afterwards, the island became a destination for tourists and scientists alike from all over the world. Now, more than 44 years have passed, and the memories and signs of the spectacular eruption are fading, but lava and ash still cover almost 400 homes and buildings.

    We will visit the volcano, play some local games, take a look at the puffins in the island and go for the great swimming pool in the island.
