A volcanic eruption started at around 7:30 PM on Saturday 21 May 2011 in Grímsvötn underneath the Vatnajökull glacier in Iceland. Grímsvötn is a very active volcanic area and has erupted five times since 1983. The last eruption was in 2004.
Due to the recent developments, Keflavík airport was closed yesterday with no flights arriving or departing. However, already today some flights are arriving again as scheduled and there are no indicators yet that there will be more disruptions to flights beyond local disturbances.

Also a part of route nr.1 (the main road around Iceland) had to be closed and therefore our tour AH35 South Coast & Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon
was canceled on Sunday. Tour departures on Tuesday and Thursday will be as usual, passengers are however adviced to keep a close eye on the latest developments.
