About the volcanic eruption in Iceland 2024 - Iceland is open

Updated: June 3, 2024

A new volcanic eruption started on May 29 northeast of Sýlingafell on the Reykjanes Peninsula in Iceland. Although this volcanic eruption might seem concerning, it is safe to visit Iceland as the eruption has only affected a small and limited area. Road closures have been implemented near the eruption site, but no major safety threats to the public have been reported. We are also pleased to announce that the Blue Lagoon is now open again.
