As we predicted couple of weeks ago authorities in Iceland have at last lifted some restrictions on visiting the site of the never-ending volcano Holuhraun in the North of the country.

Yup, you can now get quite a bit closer to this ongoing volcano than ever before but as you might know lava has been flowing from this place since fall 2014. Until now the only way to see the eruption has been from the air and that understandably too expensive for many.[blockquote type=”blockquote_line” align=”right”]Do not think of going commando[/blockquote]

Mind you not to let expectations run amok. While you can get closer to the source it is still quite a distance away and perhaps worse is the fact that the flow of lava has diminished quite rapidly these last weeks. It means you won´t see the majestic stuff like burning lava thrown high up in the air. Worse, because of high ash ridges formed along the rift in question you might not even see much at all except white smoke in the distance. But certainly something to selfie about 😉

One more thing though. Do not think of going commando. Getting to the designated viewing spot is far from easy in winter conditions. This is the highland after all and only experienced drivers in modified vehicles can be trusted to go to and fro.
