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.
Next to the volcano on road 1 you can find a little museum called Eyjafjallajökull visitor centre. We recommend you to visit it. You will see exclusive videos about the eruption and listen to the stories of local people about how they survived this catastrophe.
One more useful thing you will learn at the museum is how to pronounce “Eyjafjallajökull” in a right way.
