The Elding team would like to reassure its guests that travel to Iceland remains open and safe for visitors, despite seismic activity described in news reports, which are highly localised to the town of Grindavík on the Reykjanes Peninsula. There is no impact on attractions or infrastructure in the rest of Iceland and you can rest assured that your planned experiences with us remain unaffected, and we look forward to providing you with an exceptional experience.

Iceland is no stranger to volcanic activity, and people from around the globe visit Iceland to experience our abundant volcanic resources. Icelandic authorities and the public are highly prepared for such events, and Iceland has one of the world's most effective volcanic preparedness measures. The Grindavík area is closely monitored and constantly evaluated based on the best scientific data. 

At this time, scientists consider any disturbance to air traffic an unlikely scenario, although it cannot be entirely ruled out, and authorities have implemented preventative measures to ensure public safety foremost. You can find the most up-to-date information on Visit Iceland and a map of the affected area, here and here.

We hope to see you in Iceland soon and are here to help if you have any pre-travel concerns.
