The Icelandic Football Association—or KSÍ, as it is called in Icelandic—faces serious accusations of covering up violence committed by members of the men’s national football team.

Mount Askja might erupt in the northeast of Iceland, in which case we would have two eruptions at the same time in Iceland—quite the unique geological event.

COVID-19 is going steadily down, although this fourth wave has claimed three lives in Iceland.

And there are floods in the south, so beware!

This newscast was shot in Laugardalur.

Walking tours of Reykjavík are scheduled in August with Valur and Bjartmar Alexandersson, (co-presenter of The Icelandic Perspective), as your guides. If you want to meet the guys – and Pollý – click this link.
