Introduction to Scenic cruise Heimaey
The Icelandic island of Heimaey is the largest island in the Vestmannaeyjar archipelago and is famous for one of the world's and most destructive volcanic eruptions.
The Eidfell eruption of 1973 was one of the most destructive eruptions in history. It destroyed half of the island's town, threatened natural harbours and created the vast mountainous landscapes that the island boasts today. The spewing lava and huge ash clouds were so relentless that they increased the overall landmass of Heimaey by a square mile. A scenic cruise around the island allows you to see the effects the eruption had for yourself, as you journey round one of Mother Nature's most incredible creations.
