OPEN THE DOOR TO ANOTHER WORLD
This one is dedicated to Volcanos and eruptions of epic proportion – forces that broke 40 KM fissures into the earths surface and formed vulcanic calderas so big you can only fully appreciate them from the air. Come face to face with geothermal powers that formed Iceland 16 million years ago.
Come face to face with the mighty Hekla is one of Iceland’s most active volcanos over 20 eruptions have occurred in and around the volcano since 874. During the Middle Ages we Europeans called the volcano the “Gateway to Hell” – who knows.
Eldgjá is the largest volcanic canyon in the world, approx. 40 km long, 270 m deep and 600 m wide at its greatest. Imagine what sort of force was needed to rip this canyon of fire into the face of the earth. The ash-clouds of the eruption caused the following summer to be one of the coolest worldwide in 1500 years.
Located deep in the Highlands Strútslaug is one of the most remote geothermal pools in Iceland. Boiling hot geothermal springs meet cold water creeks. When the hot and cold water blend to form a natural hot-pot in the middle of nowhere a perfect place for a realxing bath is found.
