There are several lava caves in Iceland. Raufarhólshellir is one the longest and the best-known ones. By visiting this cave you can get a feeling of inner workings of a volcanic eruption that occured about 5200 years ago.

Kerið is not just a stunning lake. It is a lake inside of a volcanic caldera (a caldera is the center of a volcano). The water is a nearly neon blue and it is surrounded by rare red volcanic rock.
The area around Kerið is not hilly anymore so it is hard to imagine that thousands of years ago this lake was an active volcano.
Eyjafjallajökull is a volcano that managed to cancel a lot of flights around the world in 2010. The eruptions started on April 10 and went on till the middle of May. Fortunately, nobody died although many people were evacuated and the local farmers had to restore their property.
Jökulsárlón is a glacial lake in the southern part of Iceland. The colour of the icebergs drifting in the water surface is bright blue. This is one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen!
The lake is located near Vatnajökull, which is Europe’s largest glacier. The national park that includes Jökulsárlón is second-largest in Europe after Yugyd Va in Russia. Jökulsárlón keeps growing as a result of global warming.
