Fimmvörðuháls (Icelandic pronunciation: (“five cairns pass”) is the area between the glaciers Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull in southern Iceland.
On 20 March 2010, an eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano began in Fimmvörðuháls following months of small earthquakes under the Eyjafjallajökull glacier. The eruption began around 23:00 and opened a 0.5 km (0.31 mi) long fissure vent on the northern part of the pass. Just over a week later, the Fimmvörðuháls eruption produced a 300-meter (980 ft)-long fissure and new craters were seen erupting on a northward path toward the area of Thórsmörk, a popular tourist nature preserve, prompting tours to stop briefly as volcanologists assessed the situation further. The two new craters at Fimmvörduháls were named. . . . all information about the place can be found at: . . . https://www.patreon.com/RafnSig
