See Eyjafjallajökull with Iceland Motorhome Rental

Iceland Motorhome Rental
These spectacular photos are from the recent eruption in Iceland of the volcano that few outsiders can pronounce - Eyjafjallajökull. The Icelandic landscape is often barren but the country is also beautiful in so many locations. And this is evidence of nature at her most powerful.

Thousands of tourists are still stranded by the volcanic ash crisis in Europe. A week of airspace closures caused by ash cloud from Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull volcano has caused the worst breakdown in civil aviation in Europe since World War II, with around 100,000 flights cancelled.

The volcano is said to be pumping between 150,000 and 300,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide a day into the atmosphere, but the crisis may still be reducing overall greenhouse gases by grounding planes, which emit CO2.
