Instructions to the public regarding the volcanic eruption

A volcanic eruption that is going on in Iceland right now, probably everyone knows that by now. Beautiful videos and photos of it can be seen everywhere.


Naturally, people want to go and have a look, but not everyone realises how far you need to walk to get there and how challenging the terrain you need to cover is. People have been running into trouble, getting exhausted and would have enjoyed the eruption even more just sitting at home looking at the great photo and video material that has emerged.


We advice people to follow the news and announcements made regarding the eruption, especially if they plan to go anywhere near the eruption site.


The Department of Civil Protection and Emergency Management has isssued instructions to the public, to those who plan on visiting the eruption site. The information is in Icelandic, English and Polish:
