We had 3 eruptions in the last 3 years in the same area: Geldingadalir erupted in 2021 for near 6 months, Meradalir erupted in 2022 for over 2 weeks and in 2023 Litli-Hrútur became the location of the third eruption and it stayed active for almost a month. Currently there is no lava being hurled out of the earth, but you can still see the craters and the vast lava fields which once where valleys and now are lakes of hot lava cooling down slowly. Come and take a closer look yourself!
