There was quite the action when Valur, Art and Polly visited the volcano this week. The mountain was originally closed off because of unexpected surge in the lava flow. Team Grapevine hiked the B path and saw a spectacular stream of lava and an almost apocalyptic atmosphere around the volcano.

You have the chance to chat with Valur during our next Ask Me Anything video call, which takes place on Friday 17th September at 1430 GMT. To take part, become a member of our High Five Club. You can join either the Secret Handshake or Elbow Five plan, but you need to do it by 1000 GMT on Friday 17th September in order to be involved!

The volcano newscast is sponsored by Lava Centre. Examine the various volcanos—eruptions and lava flows, volcanic and rift systems, faults and glacial floods that make Iceland a showcase of volcanism. New material about the Geldingadalir eruption!

Newscast supported by Einstök Beer
