ABOUT THE WESTMAN ISLANDS

Like the rest of Iceland, the area is very volcanically active. In 1973 Eldfell volcano erupted and destroyed many buildings and forced a months-long evacuation of the entire population to the mainland. In 1963 there was also a major eruption that created Surtsey.

The islands are famed for their major annual festival, Þjóðhátíð (National festival) which attracts thousands of people each year. It is held on the first weekend in August (Thursday – Monday). This Iceland holidays Westman Islands tour is a day tour that can easily be recommended!
