How to make a volcano cake

Here's an idea for home cooking with some Geography! It's an experimental recipe rather like the real thing, can you predict where the lava will start to flow when the eruption begins? The steps for making the cake are based on a recipe I found in Iceland some years ago, and there's masses of scope to make create something really spectacular!

Hubble Bubble Bárðarbunga!

Iceland’s current eruption isn’t all that easy to get to, and true to form, I flew back from Akureyri only a matter of days before this one began so haven’t yet been able to see it myself. However, when we received an enquiry in late August about a trip to Iceland to see caves and volcanoes we were delighted to […]

Iceland’s natural warmth

Harnessing the natural power of heat from the earth has provided Iceland with luxurious spas, space heating, greenhouse cultivation, fantastic swimming and showering facilities and in some places ice-free pavements. Isolated farms use their own bore holes and some of the best salt ever is produced from the sea using geothermal processes. It’s a technology that’s interesting to understand and […]

The mysteries of Ásbyrgi

This fantastic and enormous horseshoe-shaped gorge lies to the north of Husavik. Surprisingly, there isn’t a river there, although the geological explanation is that volcanic activity under the Vatnajökull glacier once produced a cataclysmic flood and a river that formed the gorge. But this is Iceland!  The much more exciting explanation is that Sleipnir, Odin’s eight legged horse was responsible. […]

Thrihnukagigur is on my List for 2013…

Last summer’s launch of a trip to see inside an Icelandic volcano was met by me with some trepidation. I’d  read about the venture just before it opened and contacted the company to find out more, and to make sure that I could book the tour for Iceland Traveller clients. With the possibility that the summer of 2012 would be […]
