A small eruption is taking place in Reykjanes peninsula, only 20 minutes drive from Keflavik airport and about 30 minutes drive from Reykjavik. Lava flows from many different craters, creating a large flava field in the Reykjanes highlands. This is a unique experience, due to the low but steady flow of lava you can experience this incredible natural phenomenon up close.
