Iceland Volcano Erupts

Hundreds of people have been evacuated due to a volcanic eruption in the south of Iceland. More than 500 people living near a volcano at the glacier Eyjafjallajokull which is the fifth largest in Iceland have left their homes.

Authorities estimate, however, that no one is in danger. Evacuation takes place mainly in view of possible floods that the outbreak could cause due to melting ice.

The volcanic eruption began around 02:00 GMT. Roads in the area have been closed and delays and cancellations to flights are expected.

Self Drive Iceland Tours

Iceland with her amazing and varied landscapes presents great opportunities for a self drive tour... Anyone into geology will be particularly impressed with Iceland's attractions as well as those people that like adventure and excitement on holiday.

Forget packed out beaches, dodgy hotel buffets and over priced pina coladas... The time to go to Iceland is now - since the economic crisis of 2008, the Icelandic Krona is one of the few destinations that hasn't got a lot more expensive thanks to the sinking pound.
