Iceland Review Team Back with Eruption Photos

By Iceland Review

After driving all night, the Iceland Review team arrived safe and sound back in Reykjavík at noon. They experienced the volcanic eruption in Holuhraun up close but then had to evacuate the area due to risk of flooding. These pictures by Geir Ólafsson say more than words.
