Stunning Lava Show Captured by Drone as Icelandic Volcano Erupts for First Time in 6,000 Years

SWNS

Fagradalsfjall volcano in Iceland began its much-anticipated eruption a couple of weeks ago—marking the first eruption on the Reykjanes Peninsula in over 800 years.

Luckily, drone videographer Vilius Petrikas was there to capture history in the making by flying his camera over the site.

The stunning footage shows the main volcanic cone and surrounding smaller cones erupting—while a valley surrounded by mountains slowly fills with lava.

30-year-old Vilius, who lives in Reykjavik, described first seeing the eruption site: “I was speechless… It’s very hard to describe how it looked and felt in person, the power was overwhelming.

“I’m still in disbelief to what I saw, and can’t wait to get back there to feel the energy of our powerful nature.”
