Like the volcano in our back yard, we proudly erupt with our website for the Þorvaldseyri Visitor Centre—a fascinating, family-run exhibit about the massive Eyjafjallajökull volcano.
 
Farmers living at the foot of Eyjafjallajökull always knew the volcano was a sleeping giant. For generations, stories of the volcano’s mighty past were as much a legacy as the land on which they live. Yet, little did they know…
 
Not only would they, and many of their neighbours be temporarily evacuated and relocated, but around the world, tens of thousands of others would be left stranded in uncertainty, as Man’s sophisticated and complex jet-age travel network was brought to its knees.
