Comunity Day

Call for all Gophers to join onboard!

Our community day will take place on Sunday June 3rd, and we will go for a trip together.

Tour Description:
Reykjanes is a peninsula in Southwest Iceland, characterized by immense lava fields, volcanoes and strong geothermal activity.
The peninsula runs along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge where the Eurasian and the North American tectonic plates are drifting apart.
Because of this geological setting, the whole peninsula is extremely volcanic active, covered with lava fields and volcanoes and small earthquakes are very common there.
During the middle ages, many eruptions occurred in Reykjanes, but no eruptions have been recorded there for the last 500 years.
