Iceland Review’s Most Popular Stories in 2010

The most popular news stories posted on Iceland Review Online in 2010 were those concerning the two volcanic eruptions, the one on the Fimmvörduháls mountain ridge in March and the one in Eyjafjallajökull glacier, which brought us 450,000 visits in April—a new record. The monthly average is around 150,000 visits.
