Volcanoes in Iceland

Iceland is a country located on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where two tectonic plates meet. This makes Iceland one of the most volcanically active places on Earth. Hekla, at 1,488 meters high, with its evocative name of "Gate to Hell," commands respect for its appearance and activity. Eyjafjallajökull, known for its global eruption, is a reminder of the dynamic forces that lie deep within the Earth. Traveling through Iceland, one can experience both the majestic beauty of these volcanoes and the awe of their powerful impact on shaping the landscape of this extraordinary island. Volcanic eruptions create new land, and volcanic ash enriches the soil. Volcanoes are also a source of geothermal energy, which is used to heat homes and generate electricity.
