When most people think about Iceland, they automatically think of ice, but fire is a big part of life on that island as well.
After all, active volcanoes exist on that island, and they continue to erupt down to this day. That includes the Geldingardalsgos volcano in Fagradalsfjall, Iceland, which has attracted the attention of many people around the world.
Included among those who are interested in the volcano is a blogger who took footage of the volcano that includes the sound of the eruption.
Jakob Vegerfors was on hand to record that video, and after sharing it on Instagram, it received a lot of attention. It is a video of the volcano that started erupting on March 19, 2021.
Prior to that time, it is thought that it had not erupted in more than 6000 years.

Vegerfors said that when he went to see the volcano, it was a lot larger than when he first saw it. It also seemed to be continuing its eruption at the same strength, so it is continuously growing in size.
The lava is thought to come from about 20 km deep, which is the mantle. It is hotter than your typical eruption, which also will likely add to the length of time that it is erupting.
