We are currently monitoring the recent eruption and ash cloud eminating from the Grimsvotn volcano in Iceland. For clients currently in Iceland, please contact the office to re-route and re-organise your itinerary. Further information will be provided to customers leaving in the next two weeks to travel to Iceland. Please get in touch by calling 0845 5195 242. Our partners in Iceland have provided the following information:

A volcanic eruption has started in Grimsvotn volcano, located underneath Vatnajokull glacier in southeast Iceland. Grimsvotn is the most active volcano in Iceland and has erupted five times since 1983, last in the year 2004. None of these eruptions threatened lives or inhabited areas and most are classified as minor eruptions. Typical eruptions at Grímsvötn last from two to fourteen days.

The Icelandic civil protection authorities have the situation fully under control. Nobody is in danger and no areas have been evacuated. Ash has reached ground on an area at the south and southeast coast of Iceland and as a precaution, the Ring road (Route 1) has been closed at Vik village (in South Iceland) and through Skeidararsandur route.
