Right now in Iceland, hot lava and a warm welcome

Just a 25-minute car ride from Iceland’s Keflavik International Airport, a constantly shifting hiking trail winds over two miles to a view of what’s quite possibly the greatest show on Earth right now.

Iceland’s¬†newest active volcano, Geldingadalur, rumbles up into a fountain of bright orange lava that cascades over the caldera’s edge so intensely visitors can sometimes feel its heat on their cheeks.
