Eyjafjallajökull Visitor Center

The Þorvaldseyri Visitor Centre opened on April 14, 2011, exactly one year after the Eyjafjallajökull eruption started. As a family-run facility, the goal is to give visitors a personal look at what it's like to have a volcano at their back door. A short film portrays the spectacular natural event, and the hectic times and incredible challenges met by the family farm of Þorvaldseyri. More information on
