Volcano Hekla about to erupt, ok to check it out?
 
Hi

Ive this big trip planned to travel around norway in august. Yesterday i heard about the volcano helka showing allot of activity the past few days and "is about to erupt" for as far as they can predict this kind of stuff.

How would you people feel about going to iceland to see/photograph the erupting volcano? Is this a deathwish or am i to dramatic?

Ive no experience in traveling to iceland or volcano's, but i feel like the atraction to both is huge. So im hoping that someone has done something simular and can advice me on the matter. I would consider to change my travelplans to go to iceland and see the eruption for myselves.

thx

Highway 1 the route around Iceland has been closed due to a flood from the glacier on top of the Katla volcano. The flood took out a 128 meter long bridge this morning and they say that it will take around three weeks to build a temporary bridge
When I am writing this there is still no sign of the volcano erupting
