The Island

The Vestmannaeyjar or Westman Islands in English, are an archipelago of 15 islands. The largest one, Heimaey is the only one inhabited and most of the people live in the main town called Vestmannaeyjabær. There was a volcanic eruption in 1973. As a result, Heimaey increased its pre-eruption area by 20%. It is located just off the south coast of Iceland, there are 2 ways to get there: by ferry or by plane. The ferry from the port Landeyjarhöfn (in summer dependent on good weather and waves) which takes 35 minutes or Þorlákshöfn (in winter and worse weather conditions and waves) which takes 3 hours.
