The mountain Hekla is the most active volcano in Iceland’s modern history. The most recent eruption was in 2000 and a number of eruptions in the last century. Today geologists maintain and predict that the volcano is due, and will erupt quite soon or even very soon. Translating the geologists terminology, it means within days, weeks, months, years and possibly decades, but very soon. Since most of us have the highest respect for our geologists, we are prepared to grab our camera and hop into our 4X4 when it starts since most recent eruptions in Hekla have been spectacular tourist eruptions.
